Due to the ongoing challenges in our community, many have been reaching out to local organizations and the shelter about assistance with feeding their pets. To aid those currently struggling we have decided to create a pet pantry. We are currently in the process of acquiring funds and in-kind food donations so that we can provide this assistance to our community.
Next distribution will be on Thursday, June 23rd, from 11am to 1pm at Buhl Elementary School.
