MASON, Mich. (WLNS) – As cold temperatures and snow continue through the winter months, the Ingham County Animal Control and Shelter are ready to help pets in need.
For families struggling to provide food, outdoor housing or bedding for their pets outdoor home there are options available.
“We have a food bank program set up for low income families, or families who just can’t get an extra bag of dog food this month,” Animal Control Officer Jeremiah Hawkins says.
The program offers the community free bags of food, bails of straw for the pets outdoor home and free outdoor pet homes for people in need.
People can go to 600 Curtis Street in Mason to pick up items, or go to the outreach center at 826 W Saginaw in Lansing.
So far this winter the shelter has donated roughly thirty outdoor pet homes this winter.
If anyone would like to contribute to the items needed, the shelter is accepting donations of food, straw and outdoor pet homes. Their number is 517-676-8370.
