The Humane Society of Summit County is proud to partner with area food pantries to ensure no family member ever goes hungry. Since December 2020, HSSC has provided over 30,000 pounds of dry dog and cat food, a month’s supply for nearly 3,500 pets, to in-need Summit County residents. Now, with additional grant funding, partnerships with local retailers and manufacturers, and community donations, we will be able to continue supplying area food pantries with pet food for their patrons, ensuring no member of the family goes hungry.

You can support our Pet Food Pantry by dropping off bags of dry dog and cat food, any brand and any size, including open and damaged packages, at our shelter or DONATE to help us purchase pet food to be distributed through this program.
At the Humane Society of Summit County, we support the human and animal bond, and the benefits of pet ownership. The Home for Life program is a resource for you in case you pass away before your pet(s).
We are here to help you make a plan and ensure your wishes for your pet(s) are met. We can temporarily house a pet before family or friends take ownership and help make this transition seamless. Or, HSSC can assume full care for your animals by providing food, shelter, socialization, and veterinary care in our no time limit shelter until they find their new home through adoption. Every plan is custom-made because your needs and your pets are unique.
There is no fee or minimum age to enroll. As a member of the Home for Life program, we ask that you make an annual contribution of any amount to maintain enrollment and consider including the Humane Society of Summit County in your estate plans.
To enroll, or if you have any questions about the Home for Life program or other planned giving opportunities, please contact Louise DiLullo, Director of Development, at email@example.com or 330-487-0333 x240.
