Humane Society Kibble Konnection

The Humane Society of Kent County’s Kibble Konnection pet food bank has helped over 350 families and over 1,000 animals since its first distribution date in March 2009. However, with the demand for the Kibble Konnection program increasing each month, donations of pet food are critical.

“We distribute around 7,000 pounds of pet food to families in need each month,” said Karen Terpstra, executive director for the Humane Society of Kent County. “The program is funded solely through donations from the community, and as long as there is food available we will be able to continue to help as many pets as we can.”

All pet food donations are accepted, but dry dog and cat food are the most essential.

“We have seen so many people who without this program might have to consider relinquishing their animals to a shelter,” Terpstra explained. “We hope to be able to continue to help them and keep these pets in their homes where they belong.”

Individuals can drop off food Tuesday through Friday from 12 to 7 p.m. or Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Humane Society of Kent County, 3077 Wilson NW, Grand Rapids. There are also nine additional donation drop-off sites in the Kent County area. A list of these drop-off sites is available at www.hskc.org or by calling (616) 791-8066.
