Paws for Hunger is the Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley’s partnership Pet Food Bank with the Hunger Coalition. The Shelter raises funds to purchase the pet food that stocks the bank. The Hunger Coalition distributes this food to families in need. Since 2010, 4,172 bags of food have been given to families within the Wood River Valley. That’s more than 77,500 pounds of food! Not only does providing pet food to families who are struggling financially help keep pets happily with the people who love them, it also opens the doors for people to ask for help themselves.
