Senior Pet Connection, the program that distributes free pet food and supplies to Pinellas County pet owners in need, is alive and well — but under new auspices: the Humane Society of Pinellas.
The Humane Society has the same goal envisioned by Gina Shields, who initiated the program that we wrote about in February: keeping pets and their owners together.
"We're very happy to have taken it over," said Abigail Kamleiter, director of administration at the Humane Society. Shields said she was forced to give up the program when it became too much to handle on her own.
