Seattle Humane put out an urgent request Tuesday for dog and cat food with a picture showing their unusually low supply.
“The pet food bank program keeps pets with their families by providing free food to pets of low-income families, including seniors and community members living with HIV or cancer,” their Facebook post read.
The greatest need is for wet and dry dog food and dry cat food.
People also can drop off pet food at their location in Bellevue -- Seattle Humane moved to Bellevue decades ago -- at 13212 S.E. Eastgate Way.
Staff said they can accept any brand of pet food, even some open food it the expiration date does not exceed three months.
The last time Seattle Humane put out an urgent call for food, more than $4,000 was donated in 24 hours, and more than 12 tons of food was donated – including at least six tons from KIRO 7 viewers, staff said.
