Oregon Humane Society is helping support pet owners by providing two free pet food banks this week.
The local shelter has been working around the state to help people feed their pets during this crisis. Since late April, close to 60,000 pounds of food has been delivered to nearly every county in the state. Now the shelter is hosting their own pet food bank.
Essential workers and people whose employment has been affected by the pandemic can pick up dog food, cat food and litter for free.
Two pet food banks are taking place this week:
- Thursday, June 18 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
- Friday, June 19 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The events are taking place at 8001 NE 14th Ave. in Portland. This location is just north of Oregon Humane Society’s main shelter.
OHS has more than 13,000 pounds of food, donated by GreaterGood.org, allocated for these food banks.
Since the majority is dog food, the shelter is asking for donations of cat food and litter to help meet the needs of the community. Donations can be dropped off in the yellow donation bins outside Oregon Humane Society’s main shelter at 1067 NE Columbia Blvd.
