Idaho Humane Society Pet Food Pantry is facing a food shortage
The Idaho Humane Society is asking for donations for their Pet Food Pantry.
"The food shortage could delay the packaging of November's pet food deliveries to companion animals of home bound seniors across the valley," said Hannah Parpart with the IHS. "Each month, IHS volunteers converge on the Pet Food Pantry to package and deliver food for over 200 pets of seniors who depend on their pets for companionship and the Pantry to help care for them."
By Friday, the Pantry said they need at least 60 sixteen pound bags of cat food and 30 eight-pound bags of cat food to be able to fulfill this month's pet food need. The IHS is urgently seeking donations of cat food from the public. Donations can be dropped off at the shelter at 4775 Dorman St. in Boise or at the IHS PetSmart Adoption Center at 130 N. Milwaukee St in Boise.
Last year, the Pet Food Pantry aided over 260 pets of home bound seniors through the delivery of over 38,000 pounds of pet food.
