Every day in animal shelters across the Midlands many owners are surrendering their companion pets to local municipal shelters.
The reason for surrendering a pet can be as simple as not having the financial resources to feed their pet.
Pawmetto Lifeline’s Pet Soup Program is a pet food bank that assists individuals with this basic resource so pet owners can afford to keep their dog or cat. We have food distributions once per month to approximately 100 clients. Each client receives about 40 pounds of food, totaling 4,000 pounds per month distributed.
You can help us continue to offer this valuable resource to the community. Monetary donations are needed for us to purchase food in bulk through Rescue Bank to distribute to our clients. Currently, we are collecting pet food donations, but it is not enough to fulfill the demand.
Can you give up eating out for lunch or dinner this week and donate the money saved to help feed a pet in need? Just $10 can help us to provide food for pets of low–income families right here the in the Midlands.
Pet Soup is also a volunteer driven program and we are always in need of volunteers to help prepare the food donations.
Help keep pets from entering the municipal shelters and help pet owners who depend on our Pet Food Bank to feed their four-legged companions.
