Every time I see the Humane Society commercial, I get so depressed I usually change the station. It's not so easy to look the other way when it's happening in my own backyard.

I am aware that the Humane Society and Ingham County Animal Shelter are separate entities but their goal is the same: To find homes for pets.

The Ingham County Animal Shelter is in need of help, according to wilx.com. Click here to see the article. Basically, food is running low because donations are down this year.

There are a number of things you can do to help.

#1 Adopt a pet. The more adoptions they have, the less animals they have to feed.

#2 Drop off any excess cat or dog food you have to the shelter.

#3 Make a cash donation.
