Tackle Pet Hunger 2021

Help us keep pets in their homes and out of the shelter! Our 2021 goal is to collect 5,000 pounds of cat and dog food for pets in need in central Ohio. All funds donated through this campaign page will be used to purchase pet food to feed pets in need. You may also donate food directly at one of our collection sites, online, or during our drop-off day!


$0 Raised of $1,500 Goal

We're excited to announce the 2021 Tackle Pet Hunger campaign will be held November 1-November 13th. Over the past eight years, our annual pet food drive has raised over 32,000 pounds of cat and dog food for pets in need in central Ohio. This year, our goal is to raise 5,000 pounds of food to benefit organizations working to keep pets in their homes and out of our already overcrowded shelters.

Tackle Pet Hunger is unique in that we bring together a wide variety of food collection sites, volunteers, and organizations to make a positive difference for animals. We have 13 food collection sites confirmed for this year’s campaign. In addition to the collection sites in the community, you may order food online, or drop off food donations the morning of Saturday, November 13 at Charity Newsies in Clintonville. All funds raised through this campaign page will be used to purchase food as well!

Our 2021 campaign beneficiaries are the PetPromise Pet Food Pantry and Sedona Grace Foundation, two organizations that offer temporary pet food assistance to those in need. By supporting their efforts, we can keep pets with the people who love them and prevent them from becoming another shelter statistic.   

Please join us to Tackle Pet Hunger! Any amount has impact and is greatly appreciated.
