Bluffton News-Banner June 16, 2010

"Due to the kindness and concern of several people, cat and dog owners who are pressed for the means to feed their pets are now able to do so.

"It all started in Marion with Annette Thompson, who works at a spay/neuter clinic. Humane Society members there were able to get damaged sacks of dog and cat food from different businesses, which they took to the Marion neuter/spay clinic to be distributed to those that needed it. There was too much for them to use, so they are sharing the pet food with Wells County."

The Humane Society has no working website and this may not be a permanent program, but if you are in the area and need food, please get in touch with them.

Indiana-Indianapolis and central Indiana area-

Indy Feral
317.596.2300

contact@indyferal.org

Note this is for feral cats only.

http://indyferal.org/index.php?page=programs

Feral Friends Program:

The Feral Friends Program is a service of IndyFeral which provides assistance (as resources allow) to caretakers of unowned stray and feral cats.

This assistance comes in the form of:

Free spay/neuter surgeries (supported in partnership with Spay-Neuter Services of Indiana or available grant funds)
Free medical care and medications (offered thru Ray’s Fund)
Free cat food (supported by a partnership with Pet Supplies Plus)
Free cat shelter(s) and feeding stations pending availability
To apply for Feral Friends, you must meet income eligibility requirements, or have circumstances that would create a hardship in providing appropriate care for a colony of unowned free-roaming cats. If you or anybody you know needs assistance with unowned stray or feral cats in your neighborhood, call IndyFeral at 317.596.2300.




IndyFeral maintains a food bank to assist caretakers of IndyFeral-managed colonies in feeding their colonies.

We recognize this can be difficult if you have a limited budget or you are trying to care for a large colony of cats.

Nutrition for feral cats is important given the rigors of their outdoor lives. Providing a daily food source and fresh water is the single most important thing you can do to help regulate their health. The food is provided through generous food donations and collected in marked food bins in participating local pet stores and businesses.


http://www.indyferal.org/

Help keep the IndyFeral Food Bank Stocked Up!

IndyFeral maintains a food bank for the many feral cat colonies and caretakers we assist. Dry or canned donations can be dropped of at:

Indianapolis-area Pet Supplies "Plus" Stores
 
in Greenwood at
8810 S. Emerson
 
in Broad Ripple at
2238 Broad Ripple Avenue
  
the West side at
9871 East US 36 - Avon, IN  


(Contact them for information regarding who qualifies to receive help from their food bank.)



IndyFeral's spay/neuter & vaccination package: $20

News and Tribune.com August 10 and August 13, 2010

Pet Pantry to assist pets, owners

"Precious Purrs and Paws Pet Pantry Inc., a newly formed nonprofit group in Jeffersonville, will offer aid to individuals, who find themselves in need of assistance to provide the appropriate and necessary care for their pet.

"The pantry will begin accepting applications for a variety of types of aid effective Sept. 1. Funding to assist pets in need will come from public donations as well as the pantry’s upcoming events
, such as “Dogs Gone Wild” and a pet and owner scavenger hunt slated for November called, “Rover’s Road Rally.”

"Purrs and Paws also will participate in many community festivals and events. To donate to help those in need, mail donations to Precious Purrs and Paws, 3310 E. 10th St., No. 215, Jeffersonville, IN, 47130.

"Visit the Web site at purrsandpawspetpantry.com or contact the pantry at 502-396-0414 for more information."


"Thus, the dawn of a new nonprofit in town — Precious Purrs and Paws Pet Pantry Inc. The VanGilders are hoping to grow the new organization into an agency that can help residents cover the costs of owning a pet.

"Veterinary care, vaccines, preventative treatments for fleas and ticks, even food, are among the things the two are trying to help fund. Monthly events — such as scavenger hunts, dog-kissing contests, longest-tail contests and holiday themed parties for Halloween and Christmas — are planned to raise money.

"Those needing the assistance would fill out an application, VanGilder would meet with them and the pet, look at veterinary records and work with the veterinarian to provide money for the care.

"Preciouspurrsandpawspetpantry.com is up and running. Applications will be available there after Sept. 1. She said the group’s primary focus will be Clark County, but they’re willing to accept applications from anywhere."


http://www.preciouspurrsandpawspetpantry.com/

Precious Purrs & Paws Pet Pantry will begin accepting applications for assistance beginning September 1, 2010.  Please check back then for an application, or call 502-396-0414 to have one mailed to you.

Note-the group's website has changed-the current one is now linked here.  They have a home page up but haven't yet gotten their links in.

ODTR PET FOOD PANTRY
The ODTR Pet Food Pantry has taken off! We have already delivered our very first batch of dog food packed in special bags with the dog food name/date of packaging. These packages of dog food (haven’t had any cat food donations yet) have gone directly to Combined Community Services to be handed out to their clients in need of help for their pets. We are taking donations to replenish our stock. I’d sure love to help the kitties too. Just because we are a dog rescue – doesn’t mean we don’t love cats too!!

"Callie Cares Inc has distribution sites every two weeks next to the Broad Ripple Dog Park in the former family center."
