The Baltimore Humane Society is opening a new food bank for people who need assistance with the cost of feeding their pets.
The idea came from two shelter employees -- cattery manager Claudia Lescalleette and animal care technician Krystal Bopst -- after they saw many people coming to the shelter seeking food for their animals
MaxAir Heating & Air Conditioning donated a shed for the new Bmore Kind Pet Food Bank so the shelter would have somewhere to store the food. It also donated a new HVAC system in the Baltimore Humane Society Spay, Neuter, & Vaccine Clinic.
"To help pet owners who may not be able to purchase food for their pet because of hard times was a no brainer," MaxAir owner Tracey Shipman said in a statement. "We are happy to help so that people don't have to give their family pet up for adoption."
