showing, conflicts, special interests, etc. When I took this job two years ago, I was panicked.

Fox Valley Humane Association’s Pet Food Pantry
About a year and a half ago the FVHA staff began to notice that pets were being surrendered to the shelter due to economic reasons. Animals that needed extensive surgeries and families that simply couldn’t afford to have the necessary veterinary work done for their pet were being forced to bring them to the FVHA. www.foxvalleypets.org “Economy takes toll on animals” Post Crescent story, pictures and video. Six months later the need escalated and owners were bringing animals to us because they could no longer afford to feed them. The economy was getting worse and the pets were really feeling the pinch. Families talked to us about not being able to make it through the week and having no money left to buy dog food. The FVHA staff began asking owners if they received assistance with a bag or two of pet food could they keep their pet and not have to surrender them to the FVHA. Many times the answer was yes and that family left the shelter with a happy dog and enough food to make it through to pay day. Due to the success of this program the FVHA has continued providing food through our Pet Food Pantry. We have partnered with the Red Cross and Salvation Army and continue to receive requests from valley residents as well. The need is great and we are always looking for ways to fill the shelves and keep the pets of the valley fed. There were concerns that this generosity might be taken advantage of and while this may have happened on occasion, the Fox Valley Humane Association has been left with fewer surrendered pets and many many more happy endings! The FVHA is excited to announce an ongoing partnership to feed hungry pets with our friends at the Winnegamie Dog Club. Club members will be donat-

ing food at the club and collecting donations at the dog shows. The FVHA is very grateful to the club for their support and generous ongoing contributions. Thanks to the Fox Valley Humane Association and Winnegamie Dog Club no pet will go hungry in the valley! You can help feed a hungry pet by donating some of the following: Purina or Iams Dog or Cat food Canned Adult Dog food in smaller cans Purina Puppy Chow Soft and Hard Dog Treats and Rawhides Purina Kitten Chow Canned Kitten food Cash donations to purchase food Donations may be brought to the FVHA at N115 Two Mile Road, Appleton 54914 and are all tax deductible. The FVHA will provide you with an inkind receipt that can be used on your taxes and of course receive our gratitude! Or contact the Fox Valley Humane Association at (920) 733-1717 or www.foxvalleypets.org
