DELAWARE, Ohio (WCMH) – Friends of Alum Creek Dog Park is holding a pet food drive this weekend.
It is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday at the Alum Creek Dog Park located at 3993 Hollenback Road in Lewis Center. Volunteers will be available between 11 a.m. -4 p.m. to unload donations from vehicles.
The event benefits Meals on Wheels of Delaware County which provides dog and cat food to at least half of their clients.
Gary Must and his wife started the program more than four years ago.
“We will take a supply of the pet food home. We have plastic bags. We mark bags cat or dog food so they don’t get mixed,” said Gary.
Ann Wennberg is president of Friends of Alum Creek Dog Park. This marks the fourth year for the organization’s annual pet food drive.
“When I found out that need of older people having to share their delivered meal with their pet, it just really troubled me,” said Wennberg.
Here is a list of items needed:
- Dog and cat food-canned or dry for young, adult and senior pets
- Kitty litter
- Anything an owner in need would require to care for their pet
Donations also benefit Hospets of Marysville. The charity helps terminally ill seniors feed and care for their pets.
