Central PA couple run food bank for hungry animals

In addition to being the state Capital, Harrisburg also is the trucking capital of the region. With a number of major interstates converging here, trucking and warehouse companies have paved over thousands of acres to park their trucks and store their goods.

A pet food pantry, which has helped feed countless numbers of rescued animals throughout the region has for 20 years been the beneficiary of the warehouse largesse, receiving donations of cat and dog food by the pallet load.

But times are tough in the warehouse business like elsewhere, and more operators choosing to sell the food at salavage rather than donate it, says Carla Haynes who runs the Animal Rescue Food Bank with her husband, Barry, in Wellsville, York County.

This has left the pantry stuggling to keep its shelves filled.

The Patriot-News of Harrisburg has more on the pantry's plight here.
