HOPE in Anthem holding pet food drive

Staff Report~ 7/31/2014

ANTHEM – HOPE in Anthem, a local mother-daughter non-profit charity, has teamed up with Anthem Pets, a local non-profit animal rescue, for the Food for Fido Pet Food Drive, running July 28-Aug. 15. 

Anthem teen Sabrina Seifert discovered that Anthem Pets is in need of pet food. She was eager to help.

HOPE just completed a successful clothing and supplies drive for the Veterans of Victory Place. Sabrina aims to be just as successful with HOPE's 1st food drive for Anthem Pets.  ‘Food for Fido’ will collect needed food and supplies for community pets in need. Drop off barrels are stationed at PostNet in Anthem.

When HOPE first approached Anthem Pets about partnering on this project, the pet rescue was thrilled to be involved.  Many people worry about where their next meal will come from and how they will be able to feed their pets when they have fallen on hard times. This food drive will greatly help those less fortunate.  Donations of pet food and treats will be distributed to low-income residents so that dog and cat food bowls will not go empty this summer.  Anthem Pets is asking for the community’s help to support this program that enables people to not have to choose between self-care and pet care.

The greatest need is for dry food, but all types of pet food, as well as cat litter are appreciated.  Every donation will make a difference.

Drop off donations at PostNet, 3655 W. Anthem Way. Hours of operation are Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. If you need assistance with pick up, please call Anthem Pets at (480) 287-3542 or email anthempets@yahoo.com.
