The Cedar Valley Humane Society has expanded our pet food pantry program to meet the growing needs of pet owners during the Covid-19 crisis. We were thrilled to recently be a part of the massive HACAP drive-through food pantry at Lindale Mall and will be making arrangements to participate in further events in the coming weeks! During Wednesday's drive-through event, we were able to serve over 300 pets and handed out over 2,400 pounds of pet food to those in need of assistance and resources to help care for their furry family members! Keep up-to-date with our future pet food pantry times and locations by following our social media!
If you need help feeding your dog or cat due to financial difficulties, CVHS is still operating our on-site pet food pantry by appointment. You can set up an appointment with our front desk staff by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 319-362-6288 between the hours of Noon - 4:00PM Monday through Friday.

We would like to send a major thank you to our corporate partners such as Theisen's and Hills Science Diet for helping us replenish our food pantry stock! These donations have helped us to continue to operate the pet food pantry at an expanded level during the Covid-19 crisis. Thank you so much for helping us to feed pets in need! Individuals looking to donate to assist in our work of feeding hungry animals can make a donation of pet food (dry cat food needed most) or by donating financially to support our food bank program! https://www.cvhumane.org/donate
