Tackle Pet Hunger

Our annual community-wide pet food drive

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. Our 2018 campaign raised 4,772 pounds of dog and cat food for pets in need. In the past six years, the Tackle Pet Hunger campaign has raised over 20,000 pounds of cat and dog food from more than 24 collection sites in central Ohio.

How does it work?

The campaign runs for two weeks each fall, ending on the second Saturday in November. During that time cat and dog food donations are collected at various establishments in central Ohio (see below for our complete list!) We close out the campaign the second Saturday in November with a drive-up collection day. Donations are also accepted through an online wish list.

Where does the food go?

All collected food goes directly to nonprofit organizations helping pets in need in Central Ohio, with the focus on keeping pets in their homes and out of the shelter. Our 2018 campaign beneficiaries are the PetPromise Pet Food Pantry and Sedona Grace Foundation.

How can I get involved?

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

Who should I contact?

If you’d like to be involved in Tackle Pet Hunger or have questions about the campaign please contact Jill Herbst.
