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.
Organizers of the Cincinnati Pet Food Pantry say they have noticed that many families are forced to get rid of their family pets because they are so short of money that they cannot afford to feed an animal in addition to their own family members. They hoped to prevent families from having to make such a heartbreaking decision by providing food for pets. [More]
