Benzie Co. Animal Shelter Hosts Annual Pet Food Drive

The Benzie County Animal Control and Shelter is hoping to help our furry friends this holiday season, through an event they call “Jingle Bells and Jingle Bowls.”

The shelter is hosting its annual pet food drive this week.

They aren’t just looking for cat and dog food, they’re accepting toys and cat litter as well.

The shelter says they rely on this drive to keep their animals fed and cared for throughout the year.

“We’re at almost 225 dogs for the year and about 175 cats on the year so it helps us out immensely,” said Kyle Maurer of the Benzie Animal Control. “We wouldn’t be able to make it without the donations from the community.”

There are five drop off locations in Benzie County:

  • Family Fare in Frankfort
  • Tractor Supply in Benzonia
  • Shop N’ Save in Benzonia
  • Honor Family Market
  • Benzie County Animal Control and Shelter
