To raise awareness of the fact that there are pets in our community that are in need of food, homes and so much more, and to collect pet food and stock the shelves of the Humane Ohio Pet Food Bank which distributes about 70,000 pounds of pet food a year! This program helps make sure that pets and free-roaming cats in our community do not go hungry, it helps pet parents keep their pets even in tough financial times, and it helps ensure that people do not have to share their own meal with their pets and go hungry themselves.
