The Animal Friends Humane Society has opened a pet food pantry for those in financial need in Butler County who are caring for pets.

The Pet Food Pantry will provide a household with food up to four spayed and neutered animals for up to three months. If the pet is not fixed, AFHS will offer one month of food and provide information on low cost spay/neuter options.

The pet owner must be low-income or currently experiencing a temporary hardship in order to qualify for this program. Proof of government assistance, unemployment, disability, or other documentation of temporary hardship (reviewed on a case by case basis) is required in order for a person to receive food from AFHS.

AFHS will keep up on this program as long as they have the supply. It is distributed on a first come, first served basis. AFHS has a stockpile of food that has been donated by the public and area businesses. Some bags are torn and taped.

Anyone is free to donate to this program. AFHS will take all brands of food for cats and dogs.

For more information, call AFHS at 513-867-5727 or go to www.animalfriendshs.org.
