Seahawks Had Two Big Wins on Saturday!

The Seahawks earned more than one win this past weekend when fans donated 1,500 pounds of pet food to the Seattle Humane Society’s Pet Food Bank.

“We are so proud of our Seahawks and grateful to the Seahawks fans for their generosity,” says Brenda Barnette, CEO of the Seattle Humane Society. “With your help, we received 1,500 pounds - that’s almost ONE TON of food! Caring Seahawks fans also donated more than $1,100 which will be used to purchase even more food for our Pet Food Bank.”

The Seattle Humane Society’s Pet Food Bank feeds more than 1,000 pets of low-income community members, senior citizens, and people with HIV/AIDS. Supplies were down 40% before Saturday’s game, so game-goers were asked to bring any dog and cat food to the MaxMobile, a 33’ bright yellow mobile adoption and education center, which was located at the northwest entrance of Qwest Field.

For those who were not able to attend Saturday’s game, donations are accepted year-round at the Seattle Humane Society shelter, located in Bellevue at 13212 SE Eastgate Way.
