Anonymous donor gives 40,000 pounds of pet food to Oregon shelter
GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) — An anonymous donor has given 40,000 pounds of pet food and snacks to the Rogue Valley Humane Society.
The Daily Courier in Grants Pass reported Thursday that most of the food will go to the organization’s pet food bank, which fed 5,000 cats and dogs from low-income households in the last year.
Some of it will also be delivered to homebound seniors who have pets.
Executive Director Margaret Varner says the truckload of donated food will cover the needs of both programs for at least six months.
The shelter itself is a no-kill facility and has room for 90 cats and 20 adult dogs.
The organization operates on donations and fundraisers and is not affiliated with the Josephine County Animal Shelter.
