As part of the 15th & 15th Street Fair, The Dog Show is raising funds Saturday, June 13, to help feed animals of homeless people.
Some of Salt Lake City's homeless people keep dogs for security and companionship. While individuals can use emergency food and assistance programs, their animals cannot.Those who purchase dog or cat food from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at 1508 S. 1500 East will have their purchase matched pound for pound by the IAMS Co. The company will distribute the food to outreach workers who regularly visit homeless camps along the Jordan River, westside industrial areas and camps in the canyons.
The Dog Show is a Salt Lake area animal grooming and boarding facility.
