BRHS Begins 2021 Pet Food Giveaways
The Blue Ridge Humane Society (BRHS) has expanded its free pet food giveaway schedule for 2021.
Community Outreach staff will host two giveaways each month for pet owners who need food.
Cat and dog food will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis as supplies last to those in need or affected by COVID-19 problems or disruptions. Social distancing and protective measures will be taken by all staff and the public is asked to do the same during the drive-thru pick-up. Masks will be required during pick-up.
Since June 2020, BRHS has hosted monthly distributions that provided pet food for the community in response to COVID-19 problems and disruptions. BRHS free giveaways have fed over 2,800 pets. BRHS has also provided over 30,000 pounds of pet food to local food banks through its community outreach programs, which have seen a 30 percent increase in demand for pet food assistance.
Pet owners in need of food but unable to attend the pick-up should call or text the BRHS helpline at
