The partial government shutdown upon us, it has thousands of federal workers in Florida living without a paycheck.
Some have to ask this question: feed themselves or their pet(s)? The Humane Society of Tampa Bay is here to help. The shelter is giving away free pet food to qualified federal workers. The Humane Society says the food assistance program for federal workers helps in more ways than one.
The food can be picked up on any day of the week during their operating hour at:
3607 N Armenia Ave, Tampa, FL 33607
There’s a limit to one donation a month. Federal workers would need to provide proof before taking home food for their cats and dogs. According to Fox 13.
