Cincinnati Pet Food Pantry offers pet food assistance

The folks at the Cincinnati Pet Food Pantry know how important family is, and they know your pets are part of your family. During these tough economic times, they know many people have to make difficult decisions and believe no one should have to decide between paying rent and buying food for their pets. If you need dog food or cat food/litter, the Cincinnati Food Pantry provides temporary pet food assistance so pet owners can keep their pets during difficult times. Their next pet food distribution day is Friday, August 20 from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. There is no income limit. You must bring a photo ID and come in person to be eligible.

Cincinnati Pet Food Pantry is at 11367 Deerfield road in Blue Ash near the Sharonville line. Take the Reed Hartman Highway exit off 275. Follow the signs to Kemper Rd. Right on Kemper, then left on East Kemper Rd. Go through 3 traffic lights and turn right on Deerfield Rd, just before the railroad tracks. Go about 3/4 mile, and at the second sharp curve, turn right into the driveway for Circle Development/Circle Storage (just after Soccer Village). The pantry is in the first building on the right.

On a related note, an adorable stray male kitty took up residence with one of us several weeks go. We came home from an overnight trip and found him “roaring” on the deck. His name is now Tiger, and, yes, we let him in the house 2 days ago because, aside from falling in love with him, we’re taking him to the vet tomorrow before we have him neutered for at the UCAN Clinic at 1230 West 8th Street in Cincinnati. They’re offering a special spay/neuter price for cats of only $25 for the month of August. Click here for more information about the services UCAN provides for pets.
