Goldsboro News-Argus May 18, 2009

Goldsboro, Wayne County, North Carolina-

"The Wayne County Humane Society's pet food giveaway has been a success in assisting struggling pet owners, organizers said, and they are still seeing more and more people coming to pick up food.

""We started helping 36 families. We're now helping over 100 families," said Barrett Parker, president of the WCHS.

"The food giveaway currently does not require proof of need or income for pet owners to receive food, and organizers say they would rather keep it that way. But they're concerned about getting the food to the people who really need it, Ms. Parker said.

""We'd rather not do that. We'd rather people be honest with us," she said. "Come if you need the help. If you don't, there may be someone who does."

"On the third Sunday of each month, the lines sometimes stretch around the corner at Carolina Mini Storage on Parkway Drive as people arrive early to claim a spot to wait.

""We don't start until 2, and we had people tell us they'd been waiting at the gate since 11:30," said Sheila Gardner, WCHS secretary. "We've been giving it all out, we empty out."


"While they don't have the resources to hold the giveaway more than once a month, and try to spread the food around as far as they can, the program volunteers still strive to assist pet owners however they can.

""We're just helping them as much as we can. Maybe they buy four bags a month, and now they're only buying three," Ms. Parker said.

"The program is not meant to support people who are breeding animals or others who are involved with animals to make money. It's also just for Wayne County residents, and intended to provide support for those who really need it. But they are concerned with getting the donated food to the pet bowls of dogs and cats who really need it, Ms. Parker said.

"The giveaway also puts the volunteers face to face with families, so they can help with any other local pet owners' concerns, such as finding a way to spay or neuter their pets.

""If they're feeding two or three, they might end up with 15-20," Ms. Parker said.

"The spay and neuter program accepts applications from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the adoption center. Unlike the food giveaway, applicants hoping to have their pet spayed or neutered at low to no cost are required to bring proof of income such as pay stub or unemployment or disability check stub.

"They do accept open bags of food, as long as the food is still good, and will even come to pick up donations if necessary. Donators can drop off food or monetary gifts at Carolina Mini Storage on Parkway Drive Monday through Friday during normal store hours."

Wentworth-Rockingham County, North Carolina-

http://www.apsrc.org/home/pet_care_assistance_program_pcap

Animal Protection Society of Rockingham County
PO Box 13
Wentworth, NC 27375
336.791.4606

info@apsrc.org

The Pet Care Assistance Program (PCAP) provides for the needs of companion animals in Rockingham County.  The following items are collected through your tax deductible* donations and distributed to pets in need around the county:

Pet Food (Please see Food For Furry Friends for donation information)

Spay /Neuter assistance and transport

Fencing and Pens

Pet Food Dishes

Dog Houses (new and used, all sizes)

Flea and tick control

Gift Bags

If you have an item you would like to donate, please contact PCAP@apsrc.org   Please let us know if you would like a receipt.

http://www.apsrc.org/home/food_for_furry_friends

Now more than ever many families are struggling to feed themselves and their pets. Every day people are making the heartbreaking choice to surrender their family pets to the Rockingham County Animal Shelter.  Regretably once the pet is surrendered to  the small and already overcrowed shelter, the chance is slim that it will ever find  another home.  Unfortunately most of the animals (Nearly 80%) are euthanized.

Our goal is to provide assistance to families so they do not have to surrender their pets and can keep and care for them until they see better times. 

TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Together we can make a difference for families and pets in need. If you want to donate pet food, please call us.  We will arrange to pick up your donation.  If you want to make your dollars s t r e t c h  even farther and help more animals, making  a monetary donation will help us buy larger amounts of food at a reduced price.

If you want to volunteer to help pick up and/or deliver pet food to needy families or help with organizing and staffing pet food drives, we would love to have you!

Send us an email FFFF@apsrc.org or give us a call at 336-791-4606. If you call us, please leave a message and a volunteer will get back to you as soon as possible.

If you wish to make a tax-deductible monetary donation, please make your check payable to the Animal Protection Society of Rockingham County

and mail it to:

APSRC Food Program
P.O. Box 13
Wentworth, NC 27375

By marking "Food Program" on the envelope and/or check,  we will know that you want your donation to be used to buy food rather than other items such as medication or bedding etc.

Thank You on behalf of the Animals!

Animal Care Unit Sets Up Pet Food Bank

Charlotte--"The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Animal Care and Control Unit is setting up a pet food bank for those who can't afford to feed their animals.

"If you would like to donate, you can either bring pet food or monetary donations to Animal Care and Control, located at 8315 Byrum Drive.  All food must be unopened.

"If you need help with your pets, you can go to the shelter and sign up for temporary help."

http://www.charlotteobserver.com/breaking/story/632134.html

Charlotte Observer March 30, 2009

Organizers of a drive to provide pet food for owners who can't afford to feed their dogs and cats have announced four sites where the food can be picked up.

Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Animal Care & Control Services are teaming in this effort, which also includes an effort to get pet food and financial contributions from the public.

Officials say the number of pets being turned in at the Mecklenburg County animal shelter is growing, as the economy continues to worsen.

Pet owners who request boxes of food will have to show proof of need, say officials of the Second Harvest Pet Food Bank.

Donors are asked to drop off bags that are 4 or 5 pounds or smaller. Those fit in the boxes being used by organizers of the Pet Food Bank. But larger bags also are welcome, they say.

Here are the pet food pickup sites:

Community Outreach, 1800 Brewton Drive. 704-333-4280. 9:30 a.m.-1:45 p.m. Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays. Contact Gwen or Blease Turner.

Abundant Life Child Development Center, 512 West 32nd Street. 704-375-0568. 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays. Contact Veronica Alexander.

Harbor Baptist Church, 5801 Old Concord Road. 704-596-2992. 10 a.m.-noon and 1-3 p.m. weekdays except Mondays. Contact Heath Spivey.

C.U.P. Ministry, 1201 East 36th Street. 704-331-4806. 9:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays. Contact David Godwin.

Here is where food can be donated:

CMPD Animal Care & Control, 8315 Byrum Drive, Charlotte.

Second Harvest Food Bank, 500-B Spratt Street, Charlotte.

Financial donations should be sent to CMPD Animal Care & Control, and made payable to "Pet Food Bank Donation."

As the economy continues to decline, more and more families have to give up their pets because they are struggling to feed them. CMPD Animal Care and Control and Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina are partnering together to assist income eligible families with food for their dogs and cats to help keep pets with their families.

So far the Food Bank Program has collected 78,427 pounds of pet food!  We have also raised just over $13,000 in monetary donations.  This money will be used to purchase food in the event that donations slow down or we are in need of a certain type of food such as kitten or puppy. Thank you for all your support.

HOW YOU CAN HELP:

Make a monetary donation to Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina Attn: Pet Food Bank 500-B Spratt Street
Charlotte, NC 28206
Drop off donations of pet food to Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina, 500-B Spratt Street, Charlotte, NC 28206.

FOODBANK: In these tough economic times, with folks across the country losing their jobs and homes, unprecedented numbers of surrenders of family pets to shelters are becoming a nationwide crisis. If you find yourself having to choose between feeding yourself or your pets, CHHS can help out temporarily, so your four-legged friends won’t have to miss any meals or be surrendered. Call or come by CHHS for information about receiving free dog chow or cat food from the foodbank. On the other hand, if you are in a position to donate unopened bags of pet food to the shelter’s foodbank, you can help less fortunate families in the community keep their beloved companions.

Free pet food is available at the shelter for pets of needy families or individuals.
 

Even though it's not listed on the society's website, there is a reference to the food bank re: food for feral cats:

http://www.chhumanesociety.org/programs-trap.php

We can loan you a humane trap, provide kibble from our Food Bank, and organize spaying and neutering with our spay/neuter coupons.

Salisbury Post May 6, 2010

"The Humane Society of Rowan County will hold its annual Lights of Love in celebration of Be Kind to Animals Week tonight at City Park Lake.

"Lights of Love are luminaria placed around the lake in honor and in memory of loved ones, both two- and four-legged. Luminaria can still be purchased at $3 each by calling the organization at 704-636-5700, option 9. A volunteer will return your call and obtain the necessary information.

"Volunteers will be available to take luminary orders at the HSRC display during Friday Night Out on the Town in front of Cartucci's Restaurant on East Fisher Street. Orders will be called to Lights of Love volunteers who will add luminaria as necessary.

"One hundred percent of the proceeds from this project will go towards the veterinary and boarding expenses of animals in the care of the HSRC. The public is invited to participate and to drive by City Lake to view this display of honor and respect.

"As always, pet food donations may be dropped off at either event. Food is dispensed to families in need of assistance with the care of their animals. "

There's nothing on the society's website about their assisting with pet food.  Suggest contacting them if you are in the area and in need of help.

Mountain Times May 6, 2010

"Tails were wagging on dogs of all shapes and sizes all the way around Ashe County Park in Jefferson on the morning of Saturday, May 1, when the Ashe Humane Society held their inaugural Woof Walk event.
 
"While both owners and dogs appeared to enjoy the Woof Walk itself - which went around the exterior of the park - many participants found it difficult due to a very steep section toward the end of the walk. Giles said that they might try to plan a less-strenuous course next year.

"The event raised $5,800 for the Humane Society from sponsorships, registration and donations from baked goods sold by The Shear Shack, a grooming business located in West Jefferson. The money raised will allow the organization to continue offering services such as reduced-cost spaying and neutering, their pet food bank (to help struggling people feed their pets) and the pet adoptions held on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m."

"Honey got a shot Saturday for her own good.

"Jeff Lott brought the 14-month-old Rottweiler to the Fayetteville Tractor Supply Co. on Raeford Road for her rabies shot. There, Dr. Olivia Guzman administered the vaccination in Lott's pickup.

""My wife rescues Rottweilers, and something like this helps keep the budget down," said Lott, who lives in Robeson County and works for a defense contractor on Fort Bragg.

"Lott, who is 39, figured he probably saved $7 by getting the rabies shot during the kickoff campaign of the pet food cooperative, Kibble Co-Op.

"Guzman is one of three veterinarians from the Cape Fear region who have offered to hold low-cost health clinics on a quarterly basis to assist low-income families with pets.

"Kathy Hynes is spearheading the co-op cause: To provide free pet food to those making sacrifices to keep their beloved animals. Primarily, the co-op is meant to serve people in Hoke and Harnett counties. But Hynes said it will be glad to help people struggling financially in Cumberland and Robeson counties, too.

"Saturday's rabies clinic, where the shots were available for $9 each, was part of Hynes' master plan.

""My whole idea is not only supply food for low-income individuals," she said, "but also provide immunization, wellness checks and heartworm (medication) for anybody."

"The clinic was billed as a grand opening, but Hynes said the co-op's website will not be available for another couple of weeks. At that time, people will be able to access the applications to participate.

""This is the start of everything," she said. "Hopefully, in a year it will be bigger. This is the grassroots."

"Pet food donations can be made at Fayetteville Tractor Supply Co., which has agreed to provide storage in its warehouse.

"Hynes, known as "Skippy" to friends, serves as a medical administrator for the Hoke County Jail. But she also pulls dogs from animal shelters, providing rescue, rehabilitation and homes for them up north. She said she has saved 170 dogs in the past decade.

"Not just anyone will be able to receive free pet food once Kibble Co-Op is in full operation.

"To receive assistance, pet owners must meet at least one of the following criteria:

"They have aid-dependent children.

"They receive disability from Social Security.

"They're on Medicaid.

"They receive food stamps.

"Other criteria are based on annual income and the number of people living in the household.

"Hynes emphasized that pets must be spayed or neutered.


"Guzman, who works in Laurinburg at the X-Way Road Animal Hospital, also serves as a veterinary member of the Scotland County Board of Health. She's helping Hynes get the cooperative going.

"Kim Krivit of Parkton and Mary Ellen Brown, an emergency room veterinarian in Vass, are also on board.

""When the economy bottomed out last October, people lost their jobs, and the drop-off rate at the (county animal) shelter went up 200 percent," Guzman said. "They couldn't buy food for their pets. None of the other vets want to give any discounts.""
