Part of the work we do at Forsyth Humane Society is in helping pets and families stay together through our pet food pantry, this reduces shelter intake so we can care for pets that come in for different reasons. We are grateful for our partnerships with other non-profits in the Forsyth County community to share pet food to those who need it. We have heard the stories of people struggling financially who either go without eating themselves in order to feed their pets, or have to make the hard decision to surrender their pet to the shelter. We hope that if free food is provided, then this burden will be eased and they will be able to keep their pets in their homes where they are loved.
This year, the Forsyth Humane Society Pet Food Pantry has distributed more than $228,978.00 in food to pet owners, and the demand is growing. The need for pet owner assistance in our community is rapidly rising, and we believe in sharing our resources to help our community. Pantries, shelters, non-profits, supporters, volunteers, fosters, adopters, and ambassadors are working together in reducing shelter intake and helping our community thrive. You, too, can help pets and the people who love them.
We have setup partnerships with the following locations where you can pickup pet food if you need it.
