This week, the Seattle Animal Shelter will be giving away cat and dog food to families in need. Here are the details:
SEATTLE The Seattle Animal Shelter joins with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) to recognize National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week, Nov. 1-7, 2009. The shelter and HSUS encourage Seattleites to take a closer look at the valuable role played by their animal shelter and its volunteers in enhancing the quality of life in this community.
During this week, the Seattle shelter will distribute free cat and dog food to pet owners in need. With a limit of two bags per household, the food will be distributed at the shelter on a first-come-first-served basis, while supplies last. The food was donated by Whole Foods as part of its community giving program.
We are proud to provide Seattle with a variety of services and community programs, says Shelter Director Don Jordan. We invite anyone interested in animal welfare to visit the shelter during the week of Nov. 1. (Remember were closed on Mondays.) Take this opportunity to visit with the animals, meet the staff and volunteers, and learn how you can help the animals. Your involvement will go a long way in saving animals lives.
