There's a food drive for the Warrick Humane Society happening this week that you should consider donating to.

The Warrick County Humane Society in Newburgh, Indiana is a no-kill animal shelter that has been around since 1983. If you're looking for a new four-legged family member, the shelter is full of great dogs and cats looking for their furever home. The thing about the Warrick Humane Society is that they do not receive any government funding and rely on donations, sponsorships, fundraisers, and proceeds from their Home Away Pet Spa to operate our shelter. So in order to keep the animals they have in the shelter taken care of and fed, they need our help, and you have the opportunity to help in a big way this week in Chandler.
