The Mid-Ohio Food Pantry for Pets has been started at the Salvation Army in Mansfield by Lisa and Rick Kemp. They were taking in pet food or monetary donations Sunday at the Pet Supplies Plus store on North Lexington-Springmill Road and talked about why they started the food pantry for pets.

Lisa Kemp says they walk dogs on Saturdays at the dog shelter on Home Road in Mansfield and ran into a couple who had to drop off their dog because they ran into hardship and couldn't use food stamps to purchase food for their pet.

So they thought about starting the food pantry for pets. Rick Kemp says the Salvation Army is providing needed space to become the pet food central distribution center. Not only are the Kemp's providing hundreds of pounds of pet food for the Salvation Army's pet food pantry, but they also work with Simply EZ Meals to provide their consumers with pet foods and cat litter for those who need assistance.
