Pohanka of Salisbury is always there when times get ruff. Recently the Wicomico County Humane Society was in desperate need of wet dog food for their injured puppies with weak and sensitive teeth. The shelter was almost completely out of wet dog food and feeding these poor animals dry food could further harm their health and prolong the healing process. In need of help, the Humane Society staff went to social media imploring local residents and business to donate a can or two of wet dog food to their shelter.
Pohanka took the initiative one step further. Only minutes after seeing the post, Pohanka’s Marketing Team was clearing local markets out of wet dog food. They packed the back of a pickup truck with over thirty cases of wet dog food cans and headed to the shelter.
The volunteers and staff were amazed when a truck full of donations pulled up to their door at just 10:30 in the morning. “It was absolutely incredible and so helpful. You have no idea how much this will help these animals grow and heal. We are all so grateful and know we can always count on Pohanka.” Said Siobhan Wyatt the Shelter Manager.
Pohanka’s donation along with numerous other wet food donations by various locals stocked the shelter’s pantry. The animals the shelter houses are once again properly fed and are on their way to finding new homes.
