Thanks to the Pet Food Bank, more than 750 pet owners each month are able to feed their pets. Volunteers pack, load and deliver this canned and dry pet food to local senior centers, low -income housing complexes, food banks and individual homes.
Bring canned or dry cat food (need is greatest for canned) to the Pet Food Bank at the shelter at 13212 Eastgate Way in Bellevue, anytime.
Individuals, community groups and businesses can hold pet food drives on our behalf to benefit the program. Many local pet stores have in-store donation barrels and the Humane Society is happy to place a barrel with any interested business. To order a barrel, call (425) 649-7566.
