TRUCKEE, Calif., December 19, 2012 - You can help the less fortunate in our community this holiday season by supporting the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe's Pet Pantry program.
The economy continues to affect dogs, cats and people, forcing some families to give up their beloved pets for financial reasons. HSTT wants to help keep our furry friends in their homes through our Pet Pantry program. With the slogan "Give what you can, take what you need," this program collects pet food and distributes it to needy families and their pets in the Truckee-Tahoe area.
If you have extra food or want to donate some, collection barrels are available at the following locations: Safeway in Truckee and Kings Beach, Pet Station, and Scraps Dog Bakery in Truckee. Support these businesses and drop an extra can or bag of food in our barrel while you are there.
We will also be handing out dog food at the Humane Society Shelter every Saturday from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. The shelter is located at the old Truckee Corporation Yard, 10720 Riverview Drive, Truckee. If you are in need of pet food, call HSTT at (530) 587-5948, and we will set you up with whatever you need.
This community has been very generous, and we appreciate it.
