These tough economic times have seen a dramatic increase in the number of family pets who are abandoned or surrendered to animal shelters because their families can't afford to feed them. To address this need, the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society has established a program to help families that have fallen on hard times and are struggling to keep their animals and their families intact.
The Western Pennsylvania Humane Society's ELLIE'S PET PANTRY Program supplies members of our local community with food for hungry pets. The program's namesake is Ellie, a courageous Black Lab mix, who was surrendered at a shelter in West Virginia two years ago because she suffers from a seizure disorder. Ellie was adopted by a Pittsburgh attorney with a horse farm, and today she lives a happy and healthy life.
If you can't afford to feed your pet and need some extra help, please come to the Western PA Humane Society on the North Shore and we will give you food for your animals.
A photo identification is required when picking up food.
For a pickup appointment and type of animals or if you have any questions about our program, please contact Linda Feitl at 412-321-4625 x246 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Calls will be returned Mon - Thurs between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. NO WALK-INS PLEASE.
We are sorry but we are only able to help individuals, not rescue groups or breeders.
