Cincinnati Pet Food Pantry Opened in Self-Storage Center

Two Cincinnati-area nonprofit animal welfare groups are combining forces to open the Cincinnati Pet Food Pantry -- a food pantry for pets. The pantry will be operated out of a self-storage facility, Queen City Self-Storage, at 4775 Red Bank Expressway in Cincinnati. The new pet food pantry is conveniently located right behind the Red Bank Emergency Vet Clinic. The Cincinnati Pet Food Pantry will be run by Recycled Doggies and Pet Alliance.
