We understand that it can be tough to make ends meet. Sometimes it can be difficult to provide for our families basic necessities including our furry family members. With this in mind, PMHS offers a food assistance program for residents in our service area who are challenged to meet the nutritional needs of their dog or cat due to financial burden. With a little assistance, a pet owner can often find a way to keep their pet in their home. Keeping pets in their homes benefits the owner, the animals, and PMHS. The owner isn’t forced to surrender its beloved pet, the animal doesn’t have to go through a stressful transition, and there’s more room left in our shelter for other animals in need.
Please call PMHS at (603) 749-5322 ex. 108 to learn more.
