LANSING, MI (WILX) — The Ingham County Animal Control and Shelter, and other businesses around Mid-Michigan, are continuing to make sure pet owners have access to basic supplies needed to take care of their pet during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The ICACS, along with community partners, said it wants to make sure no pet owner has to make the decision of rehoming their family pet because they are not able to afford basic pet necessities.
The ICACs said Preuss Pets has supported pet food programs in the area by giving cat litter, puppy and kitten food with the help of corporate sponsors like Meijer and Pet Supplies Plus.
In addition, the Capital Area Humane Society was able to provide pet food and funding from the Ingham County Animal Shelter Fund was used to buy pet supplies.
