I had no idea that the Idaho Humane Society helps feed the pets of the valley's senior citizens, but apparently they do. They do it through the successful Meals on Wheels program.

Here's how it works:

The Pet Food Pantry volunteers deliver pet food Meals on Wheels to 230 companion animals of homebound seniors in the valley. In cat food alone, the participating seniors are delivered 1,300 pounds of food every month.

But, the cat food stock is low right now and that's why they are seeking more donations.

The bottom line: To complete deliveries to pets of the Meals on Wheels seniors, the pantry will require 150 bags of cat food donated this week!

Donations of pet food can be dropped off at the Idaho Humane Society shelter at 4775 Dorman St., Boise. .

Monetary donations for the Pet Food Pantry can be made online at www.idahohumanesociety.org or by calling (208) 387-2760.
