[1/30/18] Wenatchee Valley Humane Society Joins Food Shelter And Love Program

Posted in FeatureTagged

For many of us, the new year brought a greater commitment to watch what when we eat and how much we eat.

Dawn Davies, Executive Director of the Wenatchee Valley Humane Society, says she made the same commitment- only for dogs and cats.

The Wenatchee Humane Society has joined the Hill’s Nutrition: Food, Shelter, and Love program- which was originally launched 2002 and provides quality nutrition to shelter animals at a discounted price…

Davies said the new program will limit unnecessary vet expenses, reduce waste, promote a healthy and consistent diet for pets at the shelter and a smooth transition into their new homes.

But the change doesn’t mean the shelter is turning away food donations any time soon.

The Humane Society will host a monthly, public animal food bank for those needing assistance with dog or cat food on the last Friday of each month.

The food bank is at the shelter – 1474 South Wenatchee Avenue. Distribution will be held in the Education Room and will begin at 11 a.m. until available supplies last or 6 p.m., whichever comes first.
