LAKE PANASOFFKEE, Fla., Nov. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- American Humane, the country's first national humane organization, and Chicken Soup for the Soul worked together today to literally deliver a ton of love in the form of 2,000 pounds of nutritious free food to the animals at the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County in Lake Panasoffkee, Florida. The donation is part of an ambitious national campaign called "Fill-a-Bowl … Feed-a-Soul™" to help care for shelter pets waiting for their forever homes.  

Together, American Humane and Chicken Soup for the Soul are distributing hundreds of thousands of meals of premium, all-natural Chicken Soup for the Soul Pet Food to U.S. shelters, which house and care for millions of animals each year, and the organizations are striving to reach a goal of one million meals. The campaign has benefited the animal victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma in Texas and Florida, as well as those caught in flood-devastated Louisiana, where American Humane set up rescue operations, and an estimated 75 percent of all homes were destroyed, leaving lost, frightened and hungry animals wandering among the wreckage. American Humane now works with Chicken Soup for the Soul to identify shelters where a donation of food can do the most good.

"We are so grateful to American Humane and Chicken Soup for the Soul for this generous donation," said Anne Miller, shelter manager of the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County. "This donated pet food will help many animals."

"This campaign helps animals when they need help most," said Dr. Robin Ganzert, president and CEO of American Humane. "On behalf of all the beloved pets across the country, a big thank-you to our friends at Chicken Soup for the Soul!" 

The "Fill-a-Bowl … Feed-a-Soul" campaign is the latest collaboration between American Humane and Chicken Soup for the Soul, which have worked on several projects together, including the publication of Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Dog Really Did That? and Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Cat Really Did That? earlier this year, with forewords authored by Dr. Robin Ganzert, president and CEO of American Humane.

Chicken Soup for the Soul's publisher and editor-in-chief Amy Newmark said, "We're pleased that we can provide assistance to animals in need and we are glad to be working with American Humane on this vital campaign."
