Your pets don't have to go hungry because the government has shut-down

The government shut down has effected so many people and their families. The Washington Post is reporting that...

The longest ever government shutdown drags on, as President Trump continues to demand more than $5 billion for a U.S.-Mexico border wall and Democrats continue to say they won't agree to any new money for it. A number of agencies have been shut since Dec. 22, meaning no employees are being paid and some are not working.

It goes deeper then politics, no matter what side you vote for, there are families that are seriously struggling to keep a roof over their head and food on the table. Market Watch reported that...

Approximately 63% of Americans have no emergency savings.

Can you imagine going almost a month without a paycheck? I could not. Many families are suffering and looking to find a way to make it through the shut-down. Now at the very least their pets can be feed. The Richland Animal has reached out to those going without.

Not that long ago, you never dreamed you'd have to ask for help feeding your companion animal(s).  The shelters are full and keeping your pet safe in your home is the goal.  Tough economic times have left no one immune or untouched and the Pet Food Bank is available to those who need help and live within a 15 mile radius of the Richland, MI area.

That is a very generous offer that could change a persons life; when things are tough we rely on our fur baby to give us love and support. Losing a pet because the government has decided not to pay you is not right. Thank you Richland Animal Rescue! If you are blessed enough to some extra money in your pocket, donations are always welcome! Just send it to P.O.Box 373, Richland MI 49083
