Pet supplies available Sundays in Tenino and Rochester

By The Chronicle team

Pet owners affected by flooding in Lewis and South Thurston counties can pick up food and supplies in Tenino and Rochester between noon and 2 p.m. Sunday.

The supply drops are being organized by Concern for Animals, an Olympia-based nonprofit that runs a pet food bank and veterinary expense assistance program to help animals in need.

“Many members of our community were evacuated from their homes and did not have time to properly prepare with their pets,” said Outreach and Development Coordinator Celia Hyde.

Supply points are located at Tenino Ace Hardware / Tenino Market Fresh, 669 Lincoln Ave. E., and Rochester True Value Hardware and Lumber, 19523 Sargent Road SW, Rochester.

Further supply drops will likely be staged in the coming weeks, Hyde said.

“We may also be able to provide supplies for animal, large animal / farm animal rescues, and help obtain veterinary assistance for animals injured in flooding,” the statement said.
