The Oregon Humane Society is hosting a pet food bank in giving Tuesday, November 30, to help community members financially impacted by high inflation and COVID-19. As the cost of food, fuel, and other necessities increases, more pet owners may struggle to make ends meet.
Since the pandemic began, OHS has distributed pet food to shelters and food pantries across the state, and has hosted pet food banks and resource days for those in need. OHS also recently partnered with OHSU on the Health Equity Fair, giving pet owners a chance to pick up food and supplies, groom their animals and speak with a vet.
“Keeping pets with the people who love them and maintaining this bond is at the core of our mission,” says Sharon Harmon, President and CEO of Occupational Health and Safety. “By hosting this pet food bank, we hope to give those who are struggling something less to worry about this holiday season.”
This event is made possible thanks to the support of major charities.
