In response to the flooding affecting the Tennessee, USA, region, due to heavy storms on May 1, the Humane Society of Sumner County is offering free petfood to local owners.
"If any resident in Sumner County is suffering because of the flood, they can come in and get canned kitten, cat and dog food," said society president Sandra Cherry.
While the facility didn't take in any additional animals, staff members have also been busy assisting the Nashville Humane Association , where hundreds of pets have been displaced by the flood, according to The Tennessean .
Cherry said that her society is currently sharing all of its crates with the Nashville association in order to help out.
