“We know that many people are having a challenging time making ends meet, and we want to help them provide for their pets,” said Michele Thames, executive director of Suffolk Humane. “We know that pets are defenseless and cannot help themselves. We want to assist people so that they can keep their pets, and we hope this will help in a small way.”
