Humane society offers free pet food to struggling owners

Local News

The Hawaiian Humane Society is offering free pet food to owners who are struggling financially.

The society’s Pet Food Bank received a donation of four pallets of dry adult dog, puppy and cat food. The food was received from an anonymous donor via Aloha Harvest to help pet owners who are struggling to put food in the bowls of their animals.

“First priority is to help those on any form of government assistance including unemployment and the homeless,” said volunteer outreach coordinator Marielle Terbio. “We want to help pets and their families stay together and to not make that tough decision to either feed themselves or feed their pets.”

Interested pet owners can stop by Hawaiian Humane Society at 2700 Waialae Avenue on Wednesday, Jan. 13, and Thursday, Jan. 14, between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to fill out an application and take home a bag of pet food.

Food will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Since its inception in 2010, the Pet Food Bank has distributed food to more than 1,000 pets and their people. Call 356-2222 to see if food is still available.
