People Helping Dogs. Dogs Helping People.

As we have mentioned during the month of August, the Humane Society of Sarasota County has the Food Pantry that gives donated pet food to those in the community who cannot, for whatever reason, feed their pets right now.

There are similar services across the state: Animal Pantry of Central Florida was started by nine year-old Zach who was shocked to see so many surrendered pets after visiting a local pet rescue. Zach has done an amazing job (with help from mom, Erica) raising awareness and pet food for those in need in his community. And at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay, Casper’s Cupboard has provided more than 500,000 pounds of food so far this year. Compare that to a total 360,000 pounds of food they handed out last year. Can those numbers be for real?

Again, WellPet came through with a huge donation to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay in 2009 as they did recently for the Humane Society of Sarasota County. KuDOGs to all who have helped.

Regarding the promotion The New Barker did in conjunction with the A.R. Gurney play, Sylvia at the Florida Studio Theatre, Wet Noses Dog Boutique and the Humane Society of Sarasota County: even though the show, Sylvia ends its run tomorrow – please don’t forget the Food Pantry’s ongoing needs. Chris, owner of Wet Noses on St. Armands Circle will have a large cart to continue collecting food all year long.
