Coastal Humane Society - "Outer Banks Pet Food Bank"

Coastal Humane Society
Due to the current financial climate on the Outer Banks, the Coastal Humane Society, with the cooperation of the Dare County Social Services Department, established a “Pet Food Bank” for older adults in the community who need help providing adequate food and/or supplies for their pets. The Dare County Social Services Department graciously agreed to warehouse and deliver these goods and Coastal Humane promised to replenish the supplies throughout the year, as needed.

The program has been extremely successful and Coastal Humane Society has so far replenished the supplies four additional times. According to Social Services, their clients have been very appreciative of the assistance.

A California friend of Coastal Humane sent in a sizeable donation in honor of her 75th birthday and that donation has been dedicated to the Pet Food Bank. In addition, area retailers have given us a discount on a couple of orders.

However, each time we replenish the supplies, it costs between $200 and $250 (after the discounts) and the designated funds are diminishing and monetary donations would be greatly appreciated. The assistance appears to be needed to enable people to keep their family pets and we hope to be able to extend aid throughout 2009 and into 2010. If you would like to make a donation, please send it to:
