HSWC Invites Local Community to Give Thanks with Pet Food Drive
The Humane Society of Washington County (HSWC) has announced its first Give Thanks Community Pet Food Drive. Pet food donations will be collected at the HSWC for needy pets in the community from Wednesday, November 15 – Friday, November 24.
“During this special season of thanks, we’re honored to offer the community a tangible way to help people in need care for the animals they so dearly love,” said Colin Berry, Development Director for HSWC. “Now more than ever, it’s imperative that we honor the bond between humans and their animals and support pet owners until they can get back up on their feet again.”
Donations can be dropped off at the Pet Food Bank truck that will be stationed in front of the shelter during normal business hours. Any kind of pet food is accepted, although cat food is needed most.
Although HSWC operates a pet food bank at the shelter year-round, the pet food donated during the Give Thanks drive will be distributed to those in need by members of the HSWC Field Services Department during their annual holiday outreach day in mid-December.
