Helping Pets and People In Need In Anderson, Indiana

Helping pets and people in need is exactly what Ernie’s Heart Pet Food Pantry does. In the Anderson, Indiana area, many people face the decision whether to feed themselves or feed their pets. Unfortunately people in these situations might feel desperate and many cities don’t have organizations to help with this problem.


Helping Pets and People In Anderson, Indiana

Jan Smith, the founder of Ernie’s Heart, knows all too well the predicaments people find themselves in because she listens to their stores. She also volunteers regularly at Animal Protection League, in Anderson, and sees the animals that are dumped first hand.

To combat the problem, Jan, along with many loyal supporters, local businesses and volunteers work tirelessly to feed hungry pets and help families stay together.  They’re doing their part to help keep animals off the street and out of the animal shelters – but they need your help.

Ernie’s Heart Needs Your Help

In order to continue helping pets and people, Ernie’s Heart hosts different events and solicits donations to buy pet food. Starting this spring, you can visit their bazaar, complete with rummage sale tables, local craft vendors and local businesses.

Ernie’s Heart seeks help from the community so they can continue their life-saving work. If you have household items you don’t want or unsold rummage sale items, they will gladly accept your donation. Contact us if you’d like more information on this.
