Each week we bring you Tuesday Tails, a way to showcase a special animal at the Humane Society of Genesee County looking for their "furever" home. This week we want to change it up a big and talk about a special new program the HSGC has launched to help those already caring for their pets

This year has been tough on so many in our community. Many have faced layoffs, job loss and dwindling funds due to the ongoing pandemic. Some have found themselves struggling to make ends meet when it comes to providing food for their families, but also for their pets.

The Humane Society of Genesee County has now announced a new program to assist low-income pet owners who need a little extra help feeding their animals. The special program was created especially for those loving pet owners in Genesee County.

Kibble Cupboard

The Kibble Cupboard, which is supported by donations, allows county residents to get temporary support in feeding their pets. The new program is intended to provide temporary relief for six months initially. You may re-apply in six months if additional support is needed.

How it Works

Those needing assistance can apply through the HSGC. You must be at least 18 years of age to receive assistance for your pet. Once you are approved, you will be eligible to return to the Kibble Cupboard once every 30 days.

If you are needing extra help feeding your pets, you can get more information on the Kibble Cupboard program and also apply here. You can also contact Mari Brooks at mari.brooks@geneseehumane.org or 810-275-0433. Applications can be dropped off Mon-Fri 12-6 and Sat 10-4, they can also be mailed in to G-3325 S. Dort Hwy, Burton MI 48529.

Since the program relies the generosity of others, donations are so important.  You can make a donation to help stock the cupboard by visiting their website geneseehumane.org.

Check out the sweet faces looking to show you some love.
