Help feed the cats and kittens at our local Humane Society.
Pet Grocer has partnered with Almo Nature to help provide our local ADHS with an ongoing donation of food. For the past two years Almo has donated over $3000 of food each year to fill the shelves at the shelter with food. Throughout the year, Pet Grocer carries wet food that you can buy for $2 to donate to the shelter. The cats need the extra moisture of wet foods and each spring the influx of kittens puts a strain on the humane society and the amount of wet food they go through.
Visit the store today, and you can buy a can, pouch, or case to donate to the shelter.
