Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County and the Humane Society Waterville Area recently received dog and cat food from Loyal Biscuit Co.

The annual “Fill Our Windows — Fill Their Bowls” fundraiser began in November and ran through Dec. 24. Loyal Biscuit’s customers purchase red, green or silver window decorations for the store window, for either $1 or $5. The funds were used to purchase food for each humane society, according to a news release from Loyal Biscuit Co.

“Our goal was to raise at least $4,000, enough for three pallets of food, to be divided between the two shelters. Instead, thanks to the generosity of our customers, we raised $5,000 which allowed us to purchase 5,630 pounds of dog and cat food,” said Heidi Neal, owner of Loyal Biscuit Co., in the release.

Their partner in this fundraiser, Canidae Natural Pet Food Co., donated an additional 370 pounds of food, bringing the total amount delivered to 6,000 pounds of healthy dog and cat food.

with the help of Prince’s Furniture, the food was distributed to each humane society on Jan. 12. Out of the 6,000 pounds, 4,300 pounds will be distributed to the Knox County humane society and will keep their dogs fed for 10 months and their cats fed for six months. The remaining 1,700 pounds was delivered to the Waterville humane society.
