Pet food distribution is today

Friends of Columbus Animal Care Services will be doing a pet food pantry distribution today from 4 to 6 p.m. in the front parking lot of Mill Race Park (off the Fifth Street entrance to the park).

The purpose of the pantry is to assist local community members with keeping their pets in their home and out of area shelters. Pet food will be available until supplies last. Mixed brands of cat food will be distributed in 4.5 pound bags and dog food in 14.5 pound bags.

This program is one of several Friends of Columbus Animal Care Services initiatives designed to keep animals out of the shelter.
