RCHS and RADART help to supply food for area food shelves

RUTLAND — The Rutland County Humane Society (RCHS) is partnering with Ocean State Job Lot in Rutland and the Rutland Area Disaster Animal Response Team (RADART) by distributing gift cards to Rutland County food shelves. As part of the RCHS Community Pet Food program, those in need of pet supplies and food will benefit from these donations during the holiday season.

RCHS is very appreciative of the donations made to the Shelter from their compassionate and caring community, including, in this case, $200 gift cards from Ocean State Job Lot in Rutland. The cards will be used by the food shelves to stock up on much needed pet supplies. If pet food and supplies are donated that RCHS cannot use, they work with many of the food shelves in Rutland County throughout the year to distribute food and supplies to them. Executive Director Beth Saradarian believes that these partnerships are an integral part of our ability to support our community and help keep animals in their homes.

This season, BROC, the Salvation Army and the Community Cupboard in Rutland as well as food shelves in Brandon, Pittsford, Killington, West Rutland, Fair Haven, Pawlet, Poultney, Danby, Castleton, and Wells received gift cards. If you need pet food or supplies, please visit your local food shelf to make the holiday season a bright one for you and your pets.
