Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV)’s Pet Pantry supports homeless animals, guardians and the community by providing food to pet guardians who cannot afford to feed their pets. Find out how you can get help today.
Humane Society Silicon Valley has a new program to keep animals in their homes and ensure that no animals are surrendered to local shelters because their guardians cannot afford to feed them. Pet Pantry supports homeless animals, guardians and the community by providing food to pet guardians who cannot afford to feed their pets. Frequently, these animals are given up simply because the guardian has lost his/her job and can no longer provide the food that the animal needs.
It is devastating to witness the bewilderment in the eyes of one of these animals, as he watches his guardian leave him behind. Humane Society Silicon Valley is committed to stopping this heartbreaking cycle.
