Local call to action from Associated Humane Society: Newark, PET FOOD NEEDED

Animals are overwhelming our food supply- please donate to fill our empty shelves!‼️

With over 200 dogs and 150 cats our food supplies can barely keep up- we are chronically over crowded with animals to care for. 🙏 We are desperate for food donations- please donate via our Amazon Wishlist or donate in person at 124 Evergreen Ave Newark, NJ from 9-5pm everyday. All food is needed: wet, dry, cat, dog & kitten! As always we thank you for your continued support!

Happenings around the city this weekend!
