BRISTOL, Ind. (WNDU) - The Humane Society of Elkhart County needs your help!

They are currently accepting any-brand bags of dry cat and dog food. HSEC says they are seeing an extreme increase in community assistance with pets. Having a steady supply of pet food is important as it helps reduce the number of animals being surrendered.

“Their options are either surrendering their animal to us, or not being able to provide food and so we use food that’s been donated by the community to give back to them so that they can keep their pets at home,” says Rob Laroy, the Director at the Humane Society of Elkhart County, “We need food. So, we need food for Cats and Dogs.”

According to Laroy, the need for their Pet Food Pantry Program is continuing to increase.

“In previous years, we’ve helped about 250 animals through that pet food pantry. Last year we served 965, and in the first few weeks of this year we’ve already served over 110 animals through this pet food pantry,” Laroy says.

Any brands can be ordered through online stores or dropped off at HSEC.

HSEC is located at 54687 County Road 19. The shelter is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
