Tackle Pet Hunger

What is Tackle Pet Hunger?

Tackle Pet Hunger is a campaign conducted by Ohio Animal Foundation to raise awareness about pet hunger in our community and collect donations of cat and dog food to keep pets in their homes and out of the
shelter. In the past 10 years, Ohio Animal Foundation has distributed over 44,000 pounds of pet food through Tackle Pet Hunger. The 2024 campaign will run October 1-31.


How does it work?

During the month of October pet food donations can be made at any of the collection sites below, or purchased through our Amazon Wish List. We also accept financial donations to purchase food for the campaign at a discount, making your dollar stretch farther and allowing you to have even more impact!

Where does the food go?

All collected food goes directly to nonprofit organizations that provide temporary pet food assistance to families in need in Central Ohio, with the focus on keeping pets in their homes and out of the shelter. Past campaign partners have included the PetPromise Pet Food Pantry, Sedona Grace Foundation, and Faithful Forgotten Best Friends.

How can my nonprofit organization be involved?

If you are with a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that offers pet food assistance in Central Ohio (Franklin and surrounding counties) we want to hear from you! Please get in touch and let us know about the good work you are doing.

How can individuals/businesses get involved?

There are many ways to support the Tackle Pet Hunger campaign! Sign up to be a collection site, conduct an employee campaign at your workplace, volunteer as a collection site liaison, help spread the word, or simply donate cat or dog food!

Help tackle pet hunger throughout Ohio communities by making a donation. All donations received through this campaign page will be used to purchase cat and dog food at a discount thanks to the generous support of Pet Supplies Plus, allowing your donation to go even farther for animals in need!
