Free pet food for those struggling to feed their animals

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Local pet owners who need help feeding their dogs or cats can now get some help. No-Kill Louisville opened its pet food bank at a warehouse located on the corner of Sixth Street and Zane in Old Louisville.

Volunteers will be on hand to help pet owners enroll in the program and give out free pet food.

"The main reason we want to do that is so that people can keep their animals rather than surrender them or post them on Craigslist," said Susan Saunders of No-Kill Louisville.

No-Kill Louisville was able to secure use of the warehouse for just a dollar a month for its rental fee.

Best Buffalo pet food has already made a cat food donation. The Kentucky Humane Society has donated the remaining supplies of dog food it had on hand before ending its pet food bank program.
