The Idaho Humane Society announced Friday that they will be offering access to their Pet Food Pantry program to all furloughed federal employees.
The program is designed to provide resources to help struggling pet owners.
People who are interested in using the program can bring their Federal ID on Sunday, Jan. 13 between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
The Idaho Humane Society says they will provide a month’s worth of pet food for up to four household pets.
“We’re honored to extend a helping hand to our friends and neighbors who are federal employees who’ve been impacted by this government shutdown. We see their dedication to our country every day and we’re proud to not only help our community members, but their pets as well,” relayed Kristine Schellhaas, communications manager at the Idaho Humane Society.
The next distribution date is Jan. 30 from 3 p.m. - 5 p.m.
You can email email@example.com for more information or if you cannot make it before 5 p.m.
More information can also be found on their website.
If you’d like to contribute food to the Pet Food Pantry to help, the humane society says they're almost out of wet cat food. They stated they could also use donations of wet dog food, small training treats, and quality cat and dog food in bags of 20 pounds of less.
