Golden Belt Humane Society appreciates the help it receives from the community. And now it's time to give back. Saturday morning at Brit Spaugh Park, the humane society will be handing out pet food and materials on a first-come, first-serve basis. Director Heather Acheson said it's part of a partnership with Chewy brand and the Humane Society of the U.S.

"There's no limit, so whenever they have a truck available, they alternate through different shelters," she said. "I happen to have the space to get all this food and hold onto it until we do a giveaway."

The event begins Saturday morning at 10 a.m. on the north side of Brit Spaugh Park, and will run until supplies run out. The supplies are for community-owned, or personal pets, and there is a limit of four items per person.

Acheson has received all sorts of goods before, from horse and llama food to dog kennels, bathtubs, and bowls. This giveaway will consist mostly of food, but cat litter and potty pads will also be available.

"I think a lot of its either overstock, it's been discontinued, maybe different packaging, maybe defective a little bit," Acheson said. "It's a wide variety of stuff."

Volunteers will assist in handing out the supplies Saturday, and those wishing to pick up goods must be present.
