The Humane Society of Charlotte is offering all federal employees that have been impacted by the government shutdown, who are in need of dog or cat food, access to their Pet Food Bank Program. 

Those who wish to participate are asked to come to the shelter located at 2700 Toomey Avenue to complete a Pet Food Bank application to enroll. 

"Let our team know you are a Federal Employee, and if we receive your application by 2 p.m. on Jan. 17, Thursday we will be able to expedite your application for the next Pet Food Bank pick up day. We will do our best to expedite applications received after that time," organizers posted on Facebook. 

Anyone who has questions is asked to call 980-288-7735.
