SPCA Opens Pet Food Pantry in Hope of Keeping Pets Out of Shelters
The current economy is impacting even the four-legged members of the family. During the past two months, the SPCA has seen an increase in people giving up their pets; many of the surrenders are due to cost.
“We are seeing people come to us who have lost their jobs and their homes and they simply cannot afford the cost of keeping their pet,” said Mondy Lamb, SPCA spokeswoman. “It’s heartbreaking for the family and for the pet.”
In order to keep families together and pets out of animal shelters, the SPCA is setting up a Pet Food Pantry to provide temporary assistance to pet owning families in need by providing a month’s supply of pet food.
“For many families, a month’s supply of pet food can mean the difference between keeping their pet or having to leave their pet at an animal shelter,” said Lamb. “And for many pets, staying in their home and out of an animal shelter can mean the difference between life and death.”
