Tackle Pet Hunger

October 29-November 11, 2017

What is Tackle Pet Hunger?

Tackle Pet Hunger is a campaign conducted by Ohio Animal Foundation to raise awareness about pet hunger in our community and collect donations of cat and dog food to keep pets in their homes and out of the shelter. In the past four years, the Tackle Pet Hunger campaign has raised over 12,000 pounds of cat and dog food from more than 20 collection sites in central Ohio.

How does it work?

The campaign runs from October 29-November 11, 2017. During that time cat and dog food donations will be collected at various establishments in central Ohio. On Saturday, November 11th there will be a drive-up drop off collection at the Charity Newsies parking lot in Clintonville to close out the campaign.

Where does the food go?

All collected food goes directly to nonprofit organizations helping pets in need in Central Ohio. The 2017 campaign beneficiaries are the PetPromise Pet Food Pantry and Sedona Grace Foundation. Both organizations provide temporary pet food assistance to keep pets in their homes and out of shelters.

How can I get involved?

There are many ways to support the Tackle Pet Hunger campaign! Sign up to be a sponsor, conduct an employee campaign at your workplace, volunteer as a collection site liaison, help spread the word, or simply donate cat or dog food!

 Sedona Grace FoundationSedona Grace Foundation Logo

The Sedona Grace Foundation was created to keep pets with their families through difficult times. Often families struggling to put food on their table must make a difficult decision to either share their human food with their beloved pet or face turning them over to a shelter, or worse, to the streets. The Sedona Grace Foundation collects pet food and pet care supplies and assembles them into care packages for distribution at local food pantries.
