40,000 pounds of pet food and treats donated to Rogue Valley Humane Society

GRANTS PASS, Ore.– The Rogue Valley Humane Society has about 40,000 pounds of pet food and snacks in stock thanks to an anonymous donor. 

Executive Director Margaret Varner told Newswatch 12 the food came from a transport company. They wanted to help out the Humane Society. 

The truck load of food will help feed animals at the shelter as well two programs the Humane Society runs. 

One of the program is a pet food bank. It helped feed 5,000 cats and dogs from low-income households in the last year. 

The Humane Society also runs what it calls “animeals.” Volunteers will deliver pet food to homebound seniors. There’s about 40 people signed up for that program. 

Varner said she hasn’t had the chance to take inventory of everything that was donated. She believes the food will last about six months.
