About Fill The Red Truck
Since 2009, the annual Fill The Red Truck supply drive, organized by Shandon neighbors and friends, has provided nearly 10,000 pounds of dog food, 4,000 pounds of cat food, and countless other pet care and cleaning supplies for the benefit of your City of Columbia Animal Shelter. They've also collected more than $20,000 in monetary donations for supplies and other shelter services, such as spay and neuter.
This year brings a new mission to the event, as many members of our community face financial struggles and employment uncertainty. Many of them are pet owners too, and some will unfortunately face the difficult choice of surrendering their pets to our city shelter if they become unable to provide for their food and care.
A donation of $16 will provide a month of food for a 1 cat household
A donation of $28 will provide a 2 weeks of puppy/kitten milk replacement formula
A donation of $53 provides a month of medications/supplements for pets with special needs
A donation of $79 will provide a month of food for a 2 dog household
Every donation will make a difference. We want every Midlands pet to remain in their home, where they belong.
