DETROIT -

The Michigan Humane Society (MHS) is asking for donations to its free pet food bank.

MHS’ pet food bank assists qualifying low-income families in metro Detroit by giving them with dog or cat food at no charge.

The program is supplied through food donations at MHS' three centers for animal care, in Detroit, Rochester Hills and Westland.

“Every day, many area pet owners depend on the Michigan Humane Society’s pet food bank to feed their dogs and cats,” said Debby MacDonald, MHS Chief Cruelty Investigator and MHS Detroit Facility Director. “These are people like you and me who love their animals, but who may have fallen on hard times. Without programs like these, they’d be forced to give up their best friend.” 

More than 2,000 families currently rely on the free pet food bank.
