Mahoning-Shenango Kennel Club Donates 5,880 Pounds of Dog Food to Help Families with Pets

On Monday, July 27 at 10:00 a.m. the Mahoning-Shenango Kennel Club (MSKC) will make a donation of 392 (15 lb.) bags of super-premium dog food provided by Blackwood Pet Food in Lisbon to Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley, located at 2805 Salt Springs Road in Youngstown.  This donation was made possible from the funds raised at the MSKC annual Christmas auction.  Rogers Feed Mill of Rogers, Ohio, will deliver the nearly 6,000 pounds of dog food to the Food Bank free of charge.

 

Families in our community are suffering from financial hardships and many need help to feed their pets. MSKC hopes that this donation can help prevent dogs from going hungry, being abandoned, or sent to a shelter due to an inability to feed them. The Food Bank will distribute the dog food through a network of 153 hunger relief organizations in Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull counties. 

“We are grateful to the Mahoning-Shenango Kennel Club for their continued support and dedication to helping families with pets in our community,” said Michael Iberis, executive director, Second Harvest Food Bank.
