The Humane Society of Washington County is almost out of adult dog food and is asking the public for help.
The shelter is asking for donations of Pedigree Adult Dog Food in the yellow bag.
"We used to receive numerous donations of ripped and torn bags of food from large retailers," said Paul Miller, executive director of the shelter. "In order to reduce waste, the pet food companies are changing from paper to plastic bags. That means we are no longer receiving the donations we used to and our supply for the dogs at the shelter is really dwindling."
Donations can be taken to the front desk from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays; 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays; and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays.
In addition, individuals and organizations interested in helping the shelter can start their own Cans for Critters campaign which would entail collecting aluminum cans for the shelter to recycle.
