Humane Society Opens Pet Food Bank

‍‍2014-12-11 11:39:47 - יז טבת תשעד mjankovitz

The Baltimore Humane Society opened the Bmore Kind Pet Food Bank on Dec. 3. Anyone in need who is unable to pay for their pet’s food is welcome to receive help from the new food bank. Part of the no-kill shelter’s mission is to end the homelessness of pets in our community, and it hopes that the pet food bank will help pet owners who have fallen on hard times to be able to keep their pets.

Two Baltimore Humane Society staff members, cattery manager Claudia Lescalleette and animal care technician Krystal Bopst, came up with the idea for the pet food bank when they noticed a lot of members of the community calling and coming to the shelter looking for help to feed their pets. MaxAir Heating & Air Conditioning donated the shed for
the Bmore Kind Pet Food Bank and donated a new HVAC system in the Baltimore Humane Society Spay, Neuter, & Vaccine Clinic.

The organization is asking the community to help support the shelter and its Bmore Kind Food Bank with donations. Because the nonprofit receives no operational funding from any government or national humane society, it relies heavily on the public’s support.   Donations of dry cat and dog food, any brand, are especially desired for the food bank.    Science Diet brand, canned or dry, is needed for the shelter animals.

Jewish community and with our allies in the non-Jewish world.Maizels wrote her dissertation on the “new anti-Semitism” and Jewish student identity on American college campuses at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
