Pet pantries opened by Wisconsin Humane Society in response to rising inflation

Inflation causes problems for American pet owners. The Wisconsin Humane Society has created an initiative to help. The Furry Friends Pet Food Pantry ensures that your pet’s needs won’t take a back seat. WHS provides pet food, treats and cat litter to people who are struggling to provide for their pets.

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that those who have pets are seeing rising prices and veterinary care due to inflation. Many pet owners struggle to make ends meet.

You can’t pay for pet food with your love. Your love for your pet is priceless, but when money is tight, what do you do? The Wisconsin Humane Society saw the need for a pet pantry and provided an answer.
