Need help feeding your pet?

Then, the Andalusia Animal Shelter and the Andalusia Area Humane Society can help, said Debra Evans with the AAHS.

“We’re offering free pet food to those in need in observance of the National Day of Service on Jan. 19,” Evans said. “The pet food pantry will provide temporary assistance to local senior citizens, low-income families, and those who have fallen on tough times.

“When people are struggling, a few bags of free dog or cat food and a little time can be all that’s needed to keep someone from giving up their beloved pet,” Evans said. “We hope to provide that bridge for them to hang on until things get better.”

Supplies are limited and will be distributed on a first come, first served basis beginning at 10 a.m. on Jan. 19 at the Andalusia Area Humane Society building located at 411 Pearl Street.

Additional distribution dates to be determined, Evans said.
