Community Food Drive - November 7 - 22!

This Thanksgiving, Catnip & Carrots Animal Bunch of Monroe is urging residents to remember the animals, as well as the people, who have been adversely affected by financial hardship.

With surging unemployment, home foreclosures and the downward economy, local food pantries are expecting an increase in requests during this holiday season. As a result, the Butler County animal shelter and local rescue organizations are also dealing with an influx of abandoned animals because their owners can no longer afford to keep them.

To assist during this crisis, C&C is sponsoring a Food Drive from November 7th - 22nd, and requesting donations of non-perishable and unopened human and pet foods, personal care items and new, unopened pet toys or supplies.

All donations collected will benefit the Shared Harvest Food Bank, along with the Animal Friends Humane Society (Butler County shelter), PAWS, and Angel Animal Rescue of Middletown.

There are several locations where you can drop off items and pick up in Monroe is also available:
