HERMITAGE – Tails of Hope, Inc. is hosting its third drive-thru cat and dog food distribution event funded by The Glenn & Jean Harnett Private Charitable Foundation.
From 10 a.m. to noon on Jan. 16, the pet food distribution at 2450 Hoezle Road in Hermitage will be first come, first serve.
“We believe joy and the spirit of giving are not limited to the holiday season,” said Soraya Hejazi, executive director. “To start 2021 off on the right paw, one cat or dog toy will be provided to each car with pet food distribution at the event, while supplies last. We hope to inspire generosity and cultivate ongoing joy in our community.”
In addition to the cat or dog food, cat litter will be available for the first time at the event due to requests from attendees of previous Tails of Hope Grub Club pet food distribution events. Cat litter will also be available one per car, while supplies last.
To ensure adherence to social distancing rules and for the safety and protection of both participants and Tails of Hope volunteers, the event is drive-thru only. Pet food and litter will be loaded into trunks by volunteers wearing face masks. People who are picking up food are asked to stay in their cars and wear masks.
