When people can barely afford to feed themselves, how do they keep their cats and dogs fed?

St Hubert’s Animal Welfare in Madison, NJ, aims to keep families from having to ask such a question thanks to cat and dog food donations from The Rescue Bank. They know times are tough and want to help families stay together.

Just the other day, a woman walked into the lobby to surrender her cat. It’s not what she wanted to do, but “money was an issue.” Instead of watching heartbreak unfold, the cat lovers of St. Hubert’s instead made an offer the cat mom couldn’t refuse.

“We agreed to drive her a supply of food once a month and neutered her cat for free.”
