DETROIT (WWJ) - During this time of year, neighbors often volunteer their time to make sure no family goes without a Thanksgiving meal. The sad reality though is that people aren’t the only ones going hungry — their pets often go without meals as well.

As part of their “Keeping Families Together” program, the Michigan Humane Society has organized their third annual Holiday Pet Food Drive to help low-income pet owners keep their pets during difficult economic times.

The pet food drive will be held this Thanksgiving weekend, Friday, Nov. 29, through Sunday, Dec. 1 at the PetSmart store located on 13 Mile Road and Little Mack Avenue in Roseville, near I-94.

Staff will be on-site during extended store hours to collect donations of dog and cat food, all of which will be donated to the society’s free pet food bank. The food will then be distributed at no charge to pet owners who qualify for the program. Those who might qualify for the program are receiving Medicaid, social security, disability or food stamps.
