The Charleston Animal Society’s community food bank, which helps pet owners in need feed their furry friends, is running critically low on pet foods and needs donations.

Each month, the food bank provides roughly 100 families with food for their pets, a service totally dependent on the community’s donations. Donations can be made either by dropping food off at the shelter, located on Remount Road in North Charleston, or having it delivered through an online retailer such as Amazon or Petango.

“The community food bank is an important aspect of our life saving efforts,” said Pearl Sutton, senior director of animal services at the shelter. “Most importantly, it helps keep families and their pets together.”

The food bank is available for any Charleston County pet owner in need, and is open every Saturday at the Charleston Animal Society.
