"Two Cincinnati-area pet rescue groups are combining to open a pet food pantry. Recycled Doggies, a 501(c)(3) non-profit Cincinnati Dog Rescue, and the Pet Alliance are opening the Cincinnati Pet Food Pantry to help owners who are currently unable to afford food for their pets.
"The organizers say they noticed, in their work rescuing animals, that many dogs and cats are given up or put down because their owners can't afford to feed them.  So they decided to step in and help.

"Dog and cat food as well as a limited supply of cat litter will be available at the new center, located at Queen City Self-Storage, 4775 Red Bank Expressway, Cincinnati, Ohio 45227 (located behind the Red Bank Emergency Vet Clinic just off I-71 at the Red Bank exit).

"Distribution days will be as announced to the public, depending on availability of donations, beginning on March 6th. Organizers are hoping for donations from individuals and businesses. The center will conduct pet food drives each Saturday this month to gather supplies and has already gotten a large donation of treats and supplies from Hartz.

"Patrons of the Cincinnati Pet Food Pantry can also receive low-cost spay/neuter services through the Pet Alliance program Spay Ohio and affordable microchipping from MicroChip USA during the month of February, thanks to a donation."

People who are having trouble providing pet food or cat litter for their pets during the recession can receive free temporary assistance from the newly created Cincinnati Pet Food Pantry.

There is no income limit for people seeking assistance for their pets, although they must state in writing that they are currently unable to provide for their animals.

Anyone seeking help from the pantry must be at least 18 years of age, present a valid photo I.D., fill out an application listing everyone in the household who is younger than 18, and agree to submit a new application if the number of pets changes or the person moves.

More than 3,800 pounds of pet food and cat litter have been collected during the past few months, organizers said.

A copy of the application and eligibility guidelines may be obtained via e-mail at or by calling 513-275-5842.

"The Cincinnati Food Pantry's first distribution day will be from 10 a.m. to noon, March 6, at the Queen City Self-Storage facility, 4775 Red Bank Rd, Fairfax.

"Pantry staff and volunteers will be on hand to register pet owners and distribute the pet food and cat litter. So far, the pantry has more than 3,000 pounds of donated pet food. The pantry will try to give each pet owner two weeks of food for each pet. Food will be in both bags and cans.

"There will be no income limit for those coming for pet food. Pet owners must be at least 18 years old, present a valid photo ID and state in writing that they are unable to afford food for their pets.

"The March 6 distribution day isn't a one-time shot. Shannon DeBra and Anita Barron, who heads Pet Alliance, want to be able to provide pet food and cat litter on an ongoing basis.

""We'd like to distribute food every two to three weeks," DeBra said. "But that depends on donations."

"Those wanting to donate money, pet food or cat litter to the pantry or to volunteer their time should send e-mails to"

Columbus Dispatch February 24, 2010

"When Capital Area Humane Society leaders asked for help refilling their pet-food supply, they expected a few bags of kibble to roll in.

"Instead, pet-food company Iams sent an entire truckload their way, easing the society's crunch and allowing them to share the bounty with 13 other groups that help needy pets

"The society will use most of its donation to refill its food bank. Humane agents and other society staff members give that food to people who can't afford to keep their pets without help."

Pet Food

Canned cat * and dog and kitten * and puppy food (Science Diet preferred)

PAX-Peace for Animals
Cleveland, OH 44130
Phone 440-888-3575

Our goal is to provide a temporary source of nutritious pet food for pets of families who are facing tough financial setbacks in Northeast Ohio.

We are not a permanent source for pet food and supplies, but we do our best to provide emergency assistance for families in need.

In 2010, we established Northeastern Ohio’s Pet Food Bank to help those who have fallen on tough times and are struggling to feed their pets.

PAX: Peace for Animals is entirely supported by donations and volunteers.

If you would like to help, please call (440) 888–3575.

To ensure our limited amount of supplies and services reaches those truly in need, we conduct a modest means evaluation. At the left is a list of what you will need to provide our screeners. Personal information is confidential and will not be shared.

If your circumstances improve, please let us know, so we can make the supplies available to others. Also, give us a heads up in advance, so you don’t run out before we can resupply you. Some food and supplies are hard to come by, so we may not always have what you need on hand, please be patient.

We only provide food and services to owners who register and humanely care for their pets. Food may not be resold. Households that resell food will no longer be eligible for food from PAX.

Here is what we require for assistance.

Proof of financial need (unemployment check, disability, SSI, welfare, recent bankruptcy, foreclosure/eviction proceedings or vehicle repossession)

List of pets in the home and the animals’ needs (senior diet, prescription, etc.)

Address and contact numbers, so we can let you know where and when to pick up your supplies

Your pets must be for companionship, and not used for breeding or illegal purposes

We are currently in need of these supplies:

Delivery vehicle (small SUV or minivan)
Gift cards to pet stores (used to purchase pet food and supplies)
Pet shampoo
Pet collars and leaders
Pet carriers & kennels
Hay and straw
Kitty litter
Cellphones and service
(2 lines)
Newer laptop computer
Newer desktop computer
Any pet food, (All food must be fresh and unopened, please.)

Volunteer. We need all types of volunteers. You probably have an expertise that can be used at PAX. We need drivers for pickups and deliveries, office help, publicists and just all-around good people.

We are particularly looking for veterinarians, trainers and groomers who could donate services during our community outreach events.

Sponsor. We need corporate sponsors to help us with our fundraising events and community outreach. Corporate sponsors receive special recognition at the events and on promotional materials.
