Bank Independent collects food, supplies for local animal shelters with Shelter Share

Bank Independent kicks off its ninth annual Shelter Share drive to benefit local animal shelters May 2.

All locations of Bank Independent will serve as donation points for pet food and supplies designated for local animal shelters: pet food, kitty litter, paper towels, nursing bottles, cleaning supplies, first aid items, used blankets, bedding and towels.

Bank Independent will close the drive May 20 with Adoption Day, sponsoring the adoption application fee for animals adopted from partner shelters.

Bank Independent has also partnered with the Tennessee Valley Museum of Art to present the Pets in Paint exhibit from May 14-27.

Pets from the Colbert County Animal Shelter will be available for adoption at the Tennessee Valley Museum of Art during Bank Independent’s Adoption Day, May 20, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.

“Bank Independent is proud to support Shelter Share as part of our Helping Hands initiative,” said Rick Wardlaw, CEO of Bank Independent. “Local shelters rely heavily on the support of the community to meet the daily needs of animals in their care.  Bank Independent is pleased to be able to provide this much-needed assistance with the generous support of our team members and the community.”

Donated supplies will be delivered by bank employees to the Athens Limestone County Animal Shelter, Colbert County Animal Shelter, Decatur Animal Services, Huntsville Animal Services, Lawrence County Animal Shelter, Morgan County Animal Shelter and Florence Lauderdale Animal Shelter.
