THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - The Thomasville-Thomas County Humane Society got a much needed delivery Monday.
America's Second Harvest of South Georgia heard about the society's need for dog and cat food and came through with a truck full of 600 pounds of food and treats. America's Second Harvest supplies food to local agencies to fight hunger or help out during natural disasters.
America's Second Harvest's Thomasville director Danny Dukes says by helping animals, they're helping people too.
"We feed elderly and we feed kids. And if you can take an animal as a companion for an elderly or a kid and help them, then that's what we're here for," Dukes said.
"Fortunately, the people of Thomasville have come out in droves before our worst fears were realized," said Walter Maseda of the Thomas Co. Humane Society. "And those fears would have been having to do major euthanizations, probably on a twice a week basis."
A manufacturer used to donate to the Thomasville-Thomas County Humane Society but stopped when the economy took a turn. The humane society is always in need of food and accepts donations anytime. They go through at least 300 pounds of food a day.
They also urge pet owners to have their pets spayed and neutered to help control overpopulation at the shelter.
