Local Pet Food Banks Running Low, Humane Society Seeks Help

Detroit (CBS Detroit) Looking to make a difference in the lives of pets — and pet owners?

The Humane Society’s free pet food bank, which gives qualifying low-income families in the metro Detroit area free dog or cat food, is running low.

And the Humane Society is hoping to rely on the kindness of strangers. 

“Every day, great numbers of area pet owners depend on the MHS pet food bank to feed their four-legged family members,” said Debby MacDonald, MHS Chief Cruelty Investigator and MHS Detroit Facility Director. “These are people like you and me who love animals but who may have fallen on hard times. Without programs like these, they’d be forced to give up their best friend.”

The program is supplied through food donations at MHS’ three centers for animal care, in Detroit, Rochester Hills, and Westland. Low-income pet owners can pick up one bag of food every week– more than 2,000 pet owners depend on this program.

The Michigan Humane Society is the largest and oldest animal welfare organization in the state.
