BCHS Receives 7,000 pounds of Purina Brand Pet Food For Local Homeless Pets

Over 150 cats and dogs will be fed thanks to donation from Purina® Pets for People™

The Bradford County Humane Society recently received 7,000 pounds of Purina brands pet food as a donation from Purina® Pets for People™, in order to support more than 150 local cats and dogs currently awaiting adoption.

“Purina’s commitment to animals and their overall health and well-being is evident in the generosity they exhibit toward our shelter,” said Jennifer L. Spencer, BCHS Executive Director. “Because of the quantity of food required to keep our animals happy and healthy, donations such as this one by Purina are vital to providing our animals with the nourishment they need to be at their best as they wait to be adopted.”

“We are happy to support the great work of The Bradford County Humane Society to care and find forever homes for these dogs and cats,” said Brenda Bax, Director, Pets for People, Nestlé Purina. “We believe that our lives are richer with pets, and are passionately committed to making pets' lives better. We hope that others in the Bradford County area who feel the same way will consider how they can join us in supporting our two-legged and four-legged friends at The Bradford County Humane Society.
