(HealthNewsDigest.com) - Chicken Soup for the Soul Pet Food and American Humane, the country’s first national humane organization, today delivered 3,230 pounds of nutritious food and love to the animals at the Kingsport Animal Shelter in Tennessee. The donation is part of an ambitious new national campaign called “Fill-a-Bowl…Feed-a-Soul™” to help care for shelter pets waiting for their forever homes.
Together, Chicken Soup for the Soul Pet Food and American Humane have distributed more than half a million meals of premium, all-natural Chicken Soup for the Soul Pet Food to U.S. shelters, which house and care for millions of animals each year, and the organizations are striving to reach a goal of one million meals. The campaign’s first shipment of 80,000 pounds of food was sent to help the animal victims in flood-devastated Louisiana, where American Humane set up rescue operations, and an estimated 75 percent of all homes were destroyed, leaving lost, frightened and hungry animals wandering among the wreckage. American Humane now works with Chicken Soup for the Soul Pet Food to identify shelters where a donation of food can do the most good.
"The Kingsport Animal Shelter is very thankful to American Humane and Chicken Soup for the Soul Pet Food for this generous donation,” said shelter supervisor Donna Davidson. “This donated food will enable us to feed our animals for months, providing sustenance and comfort as they wait for their forever homes."
“This campaign helps animals when they need help most,” said Dr. Robin Ganzert, president and CEO of American Humane. “On behalf of all the beloved pets across the country, a big thank-you to our friends at Chicken Soup for the Soul!”
The “Fill-a-Bowl…Feed-a-Soul” campaign is the latest collaboration between American Humane and Chicken Soup for the Soul, which have worked on several projects together, including the publication of Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Very Good, Very Bad Dog and Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Very Good, Very Bad Cat earlier this year, with forewords authored by Dr. Robin Ganzert, president and CEO of American Humane.
Chicken Soup for the Soul’s publisher and editor-in-chief Amy Newmark said, “We’re pleased that we can provide assistance to animals in need and we are glad to be working with American Humane on this vital campaign.”
