When money is tight and things are so uncertain, families in Brown County are faced with a difficult decision: how am I going to afford to feed my pet?

Chasity Cecil with the animal rescue Hope’s Paws has been helping people facing that decision.

“A lot of people have gotten laid off, so people are getting really nervous, thinking, ‘How am I going to feed myself, my family, provide for everything and then my animals?’ I’ve had four people ask me in the last three days if we would be able to take their animals if it came down to it, or if we could place them in rescues,” Cecil said.

Cecil doesn’t want people to lose their animals, and local rescues are already full, so she stepped up and created a pet food pantry.
