San Diego Humane Society offer free pet food during government shutdown
The San Diego Humane Society will be handing out free pet food today in response to the American government shutdown.
The "Trump shutdown" has been in effect for 24 days now, the longest in U.S. history.
The San Diego Humane Society decided to help out those who will be struggling to feed pets.
They said in a Facebook post:
"San Diego Humane Society will offer free pet food to federal employees affected by the temporary government shutdown.
"From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m, our PAWS San Diego team will set up temporary distribution centers at all three of our campuses (Escondido, Oceanside and San Diego).
"We will provide two bags of pet food per family. Recipients will need to bring proof of federal employment. All food will be available on a first come, first served basis while supplies last."
The U.S. government has been partially shut down following an impasse over President Trump's demand for $5.6 billion in federal funds for a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
