 2012 was another successful year for Celtic Club of Ohio’s Annual St. Pet’s Food Drive.  

People donated nearly 2000 pounds of pet food (along with cat litter) at their local fire departments.  The donations benefited humane/animal rescue groups in Summit, Stark and Portage Counties.

OGGA President, Pat Tidwell with Rose Cazantzes, also a member of OGGA.

On April 7, 2012 members from local animal rescue organizations gathered at the Stark County Dog Warden’s office for the pet food to be distributed.

Rescue organizations were also requested to take pet food and/or cat litter for people in their community that could benefit from some.

Timken High School students raffled off four $25 Petsmart gift cards to food drive participants. 

OGGA  was grateful to receive a Petsmart gift card which was then donated to Erie Shore Greyhound to help an unemployed greyhound owner in that group.

OGGA wishes to THANK:
