Drive to benefit ACARF


September 24, 2019 - 10:04 AM

The Iola Community Involvement Task Force/PRIDE Committee is spearheading a drive to benefit the Allen County Animal Rescue Facility.

Starting Oct. 1, collection boxes will be set up at Iola City Hall, Orscheln Farm and Home, the Feedlot, Emprise Bank and Bank of Gas for the community to fill with ACARF wish list items.

The CITF/PRIDE committee targeted the animal shelter “because of the huge amount of animals that are left uncared for,” noted Donna Houser, one of the volunteers.

Wish list items:

— Trash bags (13 and 55 gallon)

— Vinegar

— Bleach

— Purina Cat Chow and Purina Kitten Chow

— Rawhide bones

— Chew toys for dogs

— Kitten or puppy milk replacer

— Cat scratching posts

— Hand sanitizer

— Carabiner clips

Financial donations also will be accepted.

The collection drive runs through October.
