Donate Pet Food for Pets in Need
The Idaho Humane Society and Meals On Wheels have partnered to form the Pet Food Pantry, a program to collect pet food for pets in need. The Pet Food Pantry is an ongoing program to provide dog and cat food to families and individuals in need of assistance, maintain our pet food supply for Idaho Humane Society foster care families, and provide pet food to other local animal welfare organizations. Many local businesses have generously signed on to provide donation locations. Click here for more information on how you can support this great program.
