CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- More than 50 bags of dog food have come in to the Kanawha Animal Humane Association after their call for help earlier this week.
Wednesday, the organization posted on it's Facebook Page that they were out of food.
The public responded in a big way.
The group asked specifically for the Purina Brand "chow" that comes in a green bag. The shelter director says there is a reason for the request.
"The reason for asking for a standard kind of food is because we are trying to standardize the kinds of food we are feeding them. Variety is not the spice of life in animals and certainly not in shelter pets who have been malnourished or starved as strays," Chelsea Staley said.
According to the group's Facebook Page the students at Ruffner Elementary donated 35 bags of that food.
Staley says they are also in need of paper towels.
If you would like to donate the shelter is located at 1248 Greenbrier Street in Charleston.
