Spring always brings an increase in puppies at the shelter and the bigger food is hard for puppies to chew.
"We're down to a 3 day supply left. So, piece by piece as it comes in bag by bag we're refilling, but if we got 100 to 200 to 300 today, we'd be out within a week," said Lysa Buehler, Shelter Manager.
If you would like to drop off some puppy food, the shelter is located at 140 E. Emperor lane. You can also call the office at 417-623-3642.
