Seattle Seahawks Team Up With Seattle Humane Society

This coming Saturday morning, January 5, at the Seattle Seahawks' much-anticipated playoff game, the Seattle Humane Society will be collecting much-needed pet food.

With the needs so great in Washington’s flooded areas, local food banks, including the Seattle Humane Society’s Pet Food Bank, are suffering. Right now, the Pet Food Bank, which feeds more than 1,000 pets of low-income community members, senior citizens and people with HIV, is down 40 percent from this time last year and the need is critical.

Game-goers are asked to bring any kind of dog and cat food. There are no restrictions, but the greatest need is for dry cat food. To find the collection barrels, look for the Seattle Humane Society’s new MaxMobile, a bright yellow mobile adoption center parked along Occidental Avenue at the northwest corner of Qwest Field starting at 10:30 a.m. The MaxMobile will also be traveling to the game with animals in need of loving homes of their own.

“What better way to start off 2008 than to bring a pet food donation to ‘Max’ and his friends on your way to this Saturday’s Seahawks game,” says Brenda Barnette, CEO of the Seattle Humane Society. “Your donations will help people in need keep their pets well fed and healthy this year.”

For those not going to the game, donations are accepted year-round at the Seattle Humane Society shelter, located in Bellevue at 13212 SE Eastgate Way.
