The COVID-19 pandemic and resulting unemployment and other factors has left more people than ever in need of food assistance. But what about the animals? Those who are having difficulty putting food on the table may also be having difficulty feeding family pets.
The Humane Society of Lincoln County, in cooperation with the ASPCA Relief and Recovery Initiative, will have a pet food giveaway for those impacted by COVID-19 this Saturday (June 20th) in the parking lot of Tractor Supply Company on N. Generals Blvd. in Lincolnton. The first come, first served event will begin at 9 AM and will last until 1 PM or until all the available food is given out.
The Humane Society of Lincoln County has been helping pet owners with low-cost or in some cases free spaying and neutering of animals since 1989. Until the pandemic forced the ASPCA Spay/Neuter Alliance to close their facility and clinics for April & May were cancelled, they offered a low cost spay/neuter clinic every four weeks. They also maintain a food pantry for those in need. For more information about the Humane Society, visit their website at https://hslcnc.org/.
