Fort Bend County Judge KP George and Houston Humane Society Organize Pet Food Drive

The Houston Humane Society and Fort Bend County Judge KP George held a pet food drive Friday, March 18 at the Four Corners Community Center in Sugar Land.

The event served 108 households. The Humane Society said Pet Pantry partnerships play a vital role in keeping pets fed at home and out of animal shelters.

“We are trying to improve the lives of animals and the lives of our citizens, which is why we are here,” George said.

Area leaders, Humane Society representatives and Fort Bend 4 County Mounties distributed approximately 5,000 pounds of food, or approximately 16,600 pet meals.

“We always love coming to help the Houston Humane Society with food distribution and traffic control,” said Precinct 4 Chief Mike Beard. “We usually meet a few pets and everyone has a great time.”

“We’ve been fortunate to have amazing partners like Judge KP George, with whom we’ve hosted Pet Pantry events in the past, who continue to help the Houston Humane Society reach pets and families who need help,” the Houston Humane Society said in a statement. “We continue to see families struggling financially due to the lasting effects of the pandemic, coupled now with a rapidly rising cost of living.”

“We’re always ready to help a cat or dog in need,” said Jessica Hernandez of the Humane Society, who oversaw the drive-thru. “If you couldn’t make it today, please check our website, there are plenty of resources available.”

The Houston Humane Society relies on the generosity of the community to stock its Pet Pantry. Anyone wishing to donate food can visit houstonhumane.org/giving/pet-pantry-donation.
