The Humane Society of Genesee County is proud to offer temporary support and assistance to Genesee County pet owners in need through our new Kibble Cupboard. The Kibble Cupboard is a new program through HSGC where Genesee County residents in need of temporary support for their pet can apply to our program to receive assistance with food for their pet(s).
The Kibble Cupboard is based on the generous donations of others so we are unable to guarantee certain brands or that food will always be available. We hope this program will provide loving pet owners in Genesee County some temporary relief in providing for their pet. Below are our program requirements:
This program is intended to provide temporary relief for six months initially. You may re-apply in six months if additional support is needed.

- Once approved you will be eligible to return to the Kibble Cupboard once every 30 days. We will provide you with a list of dates to return.
