Help to feed your pets!!!
The Humane Society offers a food bank for pet owners whom are facing difficult financial situations. The hours may be different depending upon your particular state, so please take a look online first before venturing to your local Humane Society. As a general rule, the food bank is open on certain days and a certain block of time on those given days. For example, in my state the food bank is open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, 9 am to noon. Both dog and cat food is available. After the first visit you must return with proof of your pet's being spayed or neutered to receive more food (If you got your pet's from the Humane Society, they should already be on record). You may use the food bank services up to 4 times a year. Depending on donations, there are some times when other items, like cat litter, are available ... but this is a bonus and not a guarantee.
If your pet needs to be fixed, but you do not have the funds, you can apply for various programs, like the "Cinderella Program" at your local Humane Society in order to obtain a no charge spay or neuter for your pet(s). There are a number of other resources on the Humane Society website; including a list various programs for assistance with pet costs if you find yourself struggling financially and worried you may have to give up your buddy.
Animal lovers and charities across the country (whom are able to donate at this time) are providing financial assistance in order to avoid such heartbreaking losses. Please check out the various resources available before giving away your family member(s).
