Pet Food Drive in July!

July 20, 2018

Stop in at Naturally 4 Paws to Donate!

The entire month of July, Naturally 4 Paws is collecting donations of cat and dog food for Kitsap Humane Society’s Pet Food Pantry! The family-owned store stocks healthy pet food brands and is the only holistic pet care store in Silverdale, at 9337 Silverdale Way NW.

Stop in, buy some food for pets in need, and it will go to Kitsap Humane Society’s Pet Food Pantry!

The pantry provides pet food to local people who need help feeding their beloved pets. Many of our pantry customers are elderly folks on fixed incomes who rely on their pets for companionship, and families facing a sudden crisis, such as the loss of a job. Providing this safety net helps keep pets in their homes with the people who love them, where they belong.

The pantry also supplies food to KHS shelter pets in volunteer foster homes. Animals in foster care get lots of love in a home setting while they  recover from surgery or illness, receive behavior training, or just need a break from the stress of the shelter environment.

Can’t make it to Naturally 4 Paws in Silverdale? Another way to help the animals is by purchasing items on our Amazon Wish List. The complete list of items needed (and those we don’t need) is listed below. On behalf of the animals, thank you for giving to pets in need!
