The health and emotional benefits of sharing your life with an animal are enormous but the cost of providing proper care for an animal can also be challenging.
The Wisconsin Humane Society believes that tight financial times should not break the bonds of love and companionship between people and their companion animals. The Wisconsin Humane Society temporarily provides Furry Friend Food for individuals who are struggling to provide food for their animals. This program has helped many people keep their animals in homes where they are loved. Angela Speed with the Wisconsin Humane Society states that they have, dry cat and dog food, and wet cat food available.
Pet food is available first-come, first-served to anyone who expresses a need. No application is required. The Furry Friends Pet Food Pantry is donation-driven and there may be times that we will not have enough donations to meet your needs. You are welcome to call the organization at (262)554-6699 (Racine, 414-264-6257 (Milwaukee) to find out if we have any donated food prior to making your trip into the shelter since we will not be able to set aside food for pick up. Thank you!
