Rescue group sponsors pet food giveaway

GIRARD, Ohio (WYTV) — Legacy Dog Rescue in Girard sponsored a holiday dog and cat food giveaway today.

Held at Family Video, the event was for families who are having trouble feeding their pets while going through a hardship.

While the group was more than happy to give away thousands of pounds of food, they also stressed responsible pet ownership.

“Pet’s are not Christmas gifts. so, that’s our biggest things this year. We get a lot of people interested in pets as Christmas gifts and they’re not. They’re a lifetime commitment,” said Jennifer Overmier.

Overmier said they gave away about 5,000 pounds of food and some straw for people who have outdoor pets.
