Pet Food Bank
Humane Ohio and Toledo’s Pet Bull Project to Join Forces for Pet Food Bank
Toledo’s two pet food banks are merging together in order to better serve the community.
Coming this November, Humane Ohio and Toledo’s PET Bull Project will be partnering together to create Toledo’s biggest Pet Food Bank yet! The two organizations have previously been conducting separate pet food banks just a mile and a half apart. This merger will allow both organizations to combine resources, and offer extended food bank hours in one centralized location to the community.
The updated Pet Food Pantry will be held at the existing Toledo’s PET Bull Project location, 2249 Tremainsville Rd. An added benefit of this location is that the food bank is conducted on the first floor to allow better access for clients who have difficulty with mobility. Additionally, young people from G.O.A.L., Green Options for Autism of Lucas County, will take part in operating the Pet Food Pantry, helping them learn skills to ready them for the workforce, while helping their community.
The Pet Food Pantry hours will be every Wednesday from 9:30am to 11:30am, the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month from 6:00pm to 7:30pm, and the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Fridays of the month from 9:30am to 11:30am.
Toledo’s PET Bull Project will take over the distribution of food during Pet Food Pantry hours, while Humane Ohio will continue to oversee the network of pet food collection bins and volunteer pick-ups. The existing Pet Food Pantry requirements will remain in effect: pet owners must demonstrate proof of financial need, live in Lucas County, and have proof that all animals have been spayed or neutered. If pets are not spayed or neutered yet, pet owners can visit the pantry one time before they must show proof they have a pending appointment with Humane Ohio to have the procedure done. The Pet Food Pantry will serve up to #25 per household per month.
The Pet Food Pantry is always in need of cat and dog food. Please help if you can by donating food at Toledo’s PET Bull Project, Humane Ohio or in one of the collection bins located throughout our community (see list below). The greatest need is dry dog and cat food and canned cat food.
