Humane society joins nutrition program
The Humane Society of Harford County has announced that it has joined Hill's Pet Nutrition Inc.'s Shelter Nutrition Partnership Program.
Through this program, Hill's supplies the humane society with unlimited amounts of its Hill's Science Diet pet foods and only charges the society for shipping costs. The humane society will be standardizing its animals' diets by feeding them only Hill's wet and dry food.
Being on one brand of food helps to prevent intestinal problems in the animals that can occur from being fed many different donated brands.
Donations of food from the public must now be from Hill's Pet Nutrition's product line; however, donations of cat and dog treats, dog biscuits, rawhides, chews, etc., can come from other brands.
Any donations of food that are not Hill's brand will become part of the humane society's new food pantry to help families who need help in providing food for their pets.
Besides food, the humane society always needs animal accessories, toys, sweaters, cat litter and cages. Standard office supplies are also welcome.
