WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, April 6, 2020 — American Humane, the country’s first national humane organization, today announced that the Humane Society of St. Lucie County received a grant from American Humane’s Feed the Hungry fund. Located in Port St. Lucie, Florida, the Humane Society of St. Lucie County provides a home for animals until they are adopted.
“Part of the Feed the Hungry fund allows us to purchase additional food and supplies for the care of the animals in our shelter, and it also assists us in assisting the community,” said Melissa McInturff, Executive Director of the Humane Society of St. Lucie County. “There’s a lot of folks that might be experiencing some financial instability and might not have the resources to feed their dog or their cat, so we will be using a portion of this money to assist our community members. From all of us here at the Humane Society of St. Lucie County, we thank you for your support.”
The Humane Society of St. Lucie County was selected as a recipient of the grant due to its dedication to animal welfare. The shelter houses dogs and cats until they find their forever home, taking in those that are lost, surrendered or rescued. It also supports the community, offering free or low-cost pet food to those in need, affordable spay and neuter services as well as low-cost wellness services.
