We aren’t the only ones suffering in a bad economy… sometimes pets go hungry too! Through the month of March, Summit County officials are asking residents to consider making pet food and cat litter donations to local fire stations.
The pet food drive will benefit the Humane Society of Greater Akron, Summit County Animal Control and many animal rescue operations countywide.
“The Akron-Canton Regional Food Bank just kicked off their annual Harvest for Hunger campaign,” said Akron Mayor Don Plusquellic. “It’s important we also remember the needs of our pets as well.”
Donations are accepted at the Fairlawn and Bath Township fire departments Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. as part of a St. Pet’s Day effort. If no one is there to accept your donation, please follow up at another time.
Local rescue groups in need of assistance are asked to call Summit County Animal Control at 330-643-8258. Last year, Summit County residents donated more than 15,000 pounds of food and pet supplies.
