To the front page!
I wish it wasnt across the country :(. Best of luck kitties!!
I'm going to order them some food from Amazon.
They clean with creamy peanut butter?
Probably use it as a treat for the animals
Cats in dire need after shelter's plea for food unanswered
They are asking for alot of name brand shit. I cant even afford these for my house
I just sent them 2 bags of food on Amazon! Every little bit helps...
I'm very sorry but I only really help dogs
This post won't last long down here...
Might be a reason why they need a specific brand, like allergies, etc.
I see your two bags and raise you three that I just sent!
Dog food is on their wish list too if you don't want to send cat food.
Equate is the Walmart brand. It's on their list for soap. I'm sure if there are store brand equivalents that would be fine?
Maybe they use it to get sticky stuff out of stray's fur? Like some people use peanut butter if they get gum in their hair
Username checks out. But seriously how fuckung cruel are you?
I'm sure they'd find a use for all donations.
Cats in dire need after shelter’s plea for food unanswered.
We have the same problem in Boise Idaho about 70 more cats then they can handle
Im not going to beleive you guys until i see proof
Oh my fuck my heart hurts. I can't do shit to help either, this is so sad. I hope you Americans do good for them
check out Fb page, donations rolling in big time ! one love !facebook.com/Hendricks-County-Animal-Shelter-257802110786/photos/
what shelter exactly ?
Can you give us an update whenever it happens? I'm sure they'll get enough stuff now. Like to see the end result.
Caution: Do not scroll through too fast, I read 'In desperate need of food, things we use: Bleach, clorox, milk handsoap'
If they are so worried about food why is it at the bottom of the list
Whoever downvoted this needs to have a dump truck full of cat food dropped on them
They're a lot more particular about their hand soap than their cat food.
Donating! Thanks for spreading awareness.
Jesus do they feed the cats household cleaning products or what?!
Peanut butter can be used to get sticky or caked on stuff off. Think gum in hair. Or in this case, poop on hair.
I know you're joking, but housing so many animals in close quarters requires a lot of attention to cleanliness and sanitation 
Awesome, that's a huge relief
to prevent disease from spreading. The specificity is probably due to ingredients, or the lack, and sensitivities.
I want the follow up post of the shelter asking us to stop.
They give medication with it.
Some peanut butter has Xylitol which is deadly to dogs :(
It's probably used to help pill the dogs.
Fair enough, but a tad agressive, don't you think?
Do you have a link to their site? I will send something.
Thats an odd thing to use the front page for
YES! This makes me so happy!
Just checked their FB page and it looks like they've since recieved a few truck loads of food and supplies. Hit me right in the feels.
What was aggressive?
Since they have national attention, and are getting lots of donations, donate to your local shelter. I'm sure that could use the same stuff.
I will send them food via Amazon today
My cat does that with a full bowl of cat food and water, so.
I sent one 20lb bag. Still need proof?
As mamá used to say: if you can't pay for the ice don't buy them whiskey
They tried chunky but it just doesn’t cover the same amount of surface area
I see your three and raise you zero that I sent because I don’t have money.... I would if I could tho...
“We have no room for cats anymore. It’s all just bags and cans of food! Please send cats!”
if they have poop in their hair i don't think brown peanut butter would help and they need to train animals and not let them sit on them
I sent three too!
This shelter has received truckloads of donations now. Please donate to other struggling shelters as well, here are some links 1/
Weird that there's no plea on the front page of their website. co.hendricks.in.us/department/index.php?structureid=84
Also, if someone knows how to do this- I tried searching for animal shelters in need and couldn't find a database of those struggling. 1/
It would take a lot of work and I have no idea how to get started but a GoFundMe for shelters (and maybe one for teachers) seems like a 2/
good idea. If anyone sees this comment and has an idea of how to get this started please message me. 3/3
Just euthanize them. Donate the food to humans
Very specific wishes regarding cleaning supply, but just any food will do?
I use peanut butter when I forget to wax my asshole.
. I expect you to watch for it!
They already have a ton of donations! Donate to your local shelters, too!
Done! 1 bag of dry and a case of wet food sent to the shelter. Feed the kitties!
Demon Kitty & Gixxer are sending their shelter sibs kitty noms right now.
Just sent them 48 cans of Fancy Feast Kitten Food. I wanna see a followup pic of the shelter PACKED with donations after this. :)
They posted on their Facebook how much got donated. It was amazing. The power of social media
This needs to be higher. I was thinking they have nothing
I think I’m sensitive today. I started crying with relief.
I was only offering a suggestion to @colonelcrabs question.
Sent cleaning supplies :)
And...now I'm crying.
Their donation button is broken too. Very few smaller cities and counties can afford to pay a web designer to upkeep the site.
Just be mindful of expiration dates. Too much food is as bad as not enough
Indianapolis resident here. Going to share this on my Facebook. I may not have anything to give them atm, but my friends might!
The outpouring support for this shelter from everyone here makes my heart happy and my eyes covered in onions. 💚
I’m from Europe and I can’t even access the site
Sent them a big bag from Amazon!
I thought that was weird too. I find that cleaners and soaps from the dollar store work well, and it saves a lot of money.
I can help. Can we make a post of a different shelter every week? And small shelters. They depend more on donations while larger ones
Just spoke to them and they have enough now to last about a month, so set a calendar reminder to send them some next month! Or adopt a cat
Can get grants and such
Going to go out and get them food today.
They already have a ton of donations, try donating to your local shelter(s)!
They already have a ton of donations, try donating to your local shelter(s)!
Awesome. I would have donated if I lived in the US.
i say find a grocery store located near the shelter ..buy the food have it delivered to the shelter ..
Now people should show this same love to their local shelters!
I live near here and am getting my family to drop stuff off Saturday.
They are going to run out of room for food soon. :P
Just checked their Facebook and they specially need kitten food, not just cat food
It's weird how they want name brand everything and are picky about the food ingredients.
Sad kitty, starving kitty, little bag of bones. Sickly kitty, skinny kitty, dying all alone.
creamy PB can be used to give medication that wont be accepted otherwise.
Almost every shelter in the south is going through this right now :(
They seem to have a lot, hopefully they do like my shelter and offer extra to owners in need.
All the broken bags of dry food at my Walmart get donatated. Maybe check ones there and try to get on their list for some
Imgur be like -hold my beer ..
@op should update the post
We should be sending to multiple animal humane societies. Not just this one. Others need help too.
I want to, but I don’t have a cat. What’s a good brand?
Probably too do with smells and strength.
Almost all comments have at least 1 downvote? Is someone angry at people for sending the cats food or just a toxic weirdo?
And the comments that reported the progress have been downvote to the bottom
If you're asking people for stuff, I don't think you have the right to ask for a specific brand. Like a homeless cunt denied a cut from my/1
ex cos it wasn't dunghill. /2
You can see their response on their Facebook page (and page for Friends of Hendricks County AS).
I agree. This is great, but please give to your local shelters. This place got a donation from a local business for 500lbs of cat - 1/2
2/2 and dog food before this post even appeared. Other shelters are in need, too. 😺
Maybe just people that want to note that this shelter is all set right now? If this stays on FP, they'll have more than they can use.
So a failing business, as much as you’d like to help them. Don’t punish the animals because you can’t afford your business supplies.
And maybe to other people?
I don't think I've heard of a shelter that isn't struggling.
Let the kitties go. They can catch food in the wild.
As cruel as it is, accept failure and try to move them elsewhere where they will be fed. Donating food is a temporary solution.
Needs new title. "Shelter inundated with donations after Social Media plea for food goes viral". Please donate to shelters in need.
I'm not sure about usa but here in nz it's all fancy feast, friskies and wiskers. Tbh I think it all will get eaten if they are hungry.
Cats in dire need after shelter's plea for food unanswered
I LOVE SEEING THIS KINDNESS, I HOPE EVERYONE WHO DONATED HITS THE LOTTERY. HOPEFULLY THE NEWS WILL BRING THIS UP.
Really surprising the good, open-minded masses of Indianans haven’t taken care of those in need within their state.
Same.. These images made me so happy.
Seems like you're covered for a year
I think that shelter is going to be flooded with donations from Imgur now
Well done, everyone!
A small bag of Purina gentle cat food is like 4.88 plus tax at my local Walmart
If they’re humans like you I’d rather they starve vs helpless cats.
What do cats eat? I never had one..
That’s imgur for ya
I'm guessing it's for dogs to take their medication.
My local shelter kills all cats that come in. No matter what. So no. I will not support them.
I volunteered for an animal shelter some years ago, and since there were many cats with illnesses they required specialized food. That's why
The difference between "we need THAT brand of soap" vs "Eh, food is food" is weird to me.
Bleach and cat urine huh?
I am not affiliated with the shelter, just pulled the image from their page, but yeah looks like they are SET! :D
Fucking Amazon. Send them some money so they can buy food themselves. No need to ship some cans across the country.
Why? Don't you think they would prefer money to buy food? Now you made food cans arrive at you by truck and then you send them off again.
are they run by peta? can we kill the ppl there and take care of the cats instead?
They seem to have a ton of food, and could probably use cleaning supplies more now.
Send cleaning supplies now! They need to have a clean shelter just as much as they needed food.
Or donate cleaning supplies instead!!
Wait, all the food they posted pictures of and the 1000lbs of food donated by a company is only enough to last a month. Wat
i think a snack would be a lot more likely
This makes me happy.
Well some knock off, dollar store shit isn't as effective - and they probably specify a brand name because other store brands don't have the
necessary ingredients. The only specific food request was no red dye 40, which some animals are sensitive to.
Just sent 3 bags of kitten food.
yeah, it can actually go to waste and it would be better if it was spread around much more than that one town
What are you cautioning against?
But you're cleaning your counters and personal bathroom. Shelters are cleaning hundreds of animal's piss and shit and blood and vomit.
Get them some cleaning supplies!!
Other cats! Duh! You didnt get that from “cat food”?
Baby turtles and alligators may seem like a cute idea for a pet, but they grow up.
Don’t give them money, they’ll just blow it on catnip.
Great. What does that have to do with your previous comment?
Maybe nothing, maybe everything. Search for the clues and dont believe anyone! Nothing is true, everything is permitted.
I'm sure they just had the cans sent to the shelter in the first place. Just have to change the delivery address
Well just what I needed in the morning, a good cry. I hope they can get what they need
*sends a bag in the shape of a cat*
they do specialize with the dog food. I know there are the odd animals, but this is probably more generalized food to free up funds to buy
special food for those 1 or 2 that need it.
I know surprised the hell out of me too. Let's just remember them again and all the other shelters. I am at catpacity or I would adopt
*nods knowingly, but knows nothing*
Might as well sift the litter out first
Great job people!
Well, these are the same people who would like to comment that cats are assholes. Cats are just better at judging people.
Even if they were assholes they don't deserve to starve. Also: people, what a bunch of bastards
Check out their Facebook page! It's happening.
Thank you so much for posting this
This post is annoying. Grow up
Can you update this? I want to see how it went
It cracks me up! Hurry we need to help the animals! But for the poor humans? "Get a job you fucking freeloading immigrant piece of shit!!"
Lol you can change the delivery address on Amazon you know
I sent 2 bags of cat food and 2 boxes of wet food.
I just shuttered my shelter due to a complete lack of support. These guys need it. My food bills were ~600/mo and I paid out of pocket.
Too true, but some, like this post is about, are in IMMEDIATE need.
That’s a great start! I’m at work right now but will brainstorm later about how to did this. Feel free to message me.
Up to their eyes in donations, I’ll admit I teared up.
The last time I donated money to a local shelter through my company ($800) the guy was just like, "Yeah. Ok." and tossed it into a box.
No, "Thank you." No smile. No handshake. Just indifference. That was the last time.
I fucking love Imgur, this almost made me cry at work
He didn't offer you a receipt for your taxes?
Nada. Didn't even acknowledge my existence. Just closed the office door.
After reading some of the reviews on fb, I can see why no one wants to help this shelter. They need to get their act together.
You walked in, gave them a check for $800 & they wordlessly took it, then closed a door in your face? :O
I don't live around there to bring items. And the page to donate money on their website is not working.
I'll do Two, one from me and one from you. Now we're both awesome.
Well. Not wordlessly. He said, "Yeah... Ok." like a disinterested teenager, before closing the door.
I'm gonna let Elayne Boosler know. Maybe she and her Non-profit are in a position to help.
Send some of the other stuff too!
That is appallingly rude. I hope you've found another charity that's more receptive & grateful.
Okay i believe you
I prefer to send food directly, not money. I'd rather not have a portion of a donation go on administration, management and marketing fees.
Get them to adopt.
Because animals can go right out, find a job, and buy their own god damn supplies, right?
I have not. I tried to move to the human side. Bought & fixed up a cheap car for a local single mom. She sold it to party the next weekend.
donated via paypal
Ok, I had two bags in my Amazon cart and then I saw this update while getting their shipping address. Good stuff. Local shelter it is then!
sent you a pm
Ah the imgur hug of death in physical form.
We already have 6 cats between us XD no more room atm but I always adopt when I get new friends
Yep, I live in Europe& I'm also short on cash, cuz my cat has had several visits to the vet this year. Gotta take care of him first.
Who cut the onions? FUCK.
I must be getting my rag. I lost it.
Kitten food, especially!!!
Do not bury them in food. Bury them in Gift Cards. Food expires relatively quickly, Gift Cards do not.
I'm working towards getting a monthly $50 gift card donation set up for Chewy.com to our local shelter. Money has been tight recently though
Yes. It is called nature.
You can, just use amazon. I had someone in the UK get me a SS pres on Amazon.
They have a ton of cleaning supplies now
How are they normally funded? How did this problem come about?
The shelters manager was crying on the news so I'm sure they are very appreciative. Don't let one bad experience deter you from helping 1/2
Don’t mess with Imgur’s cat people! Lol
elsewhere when needed. 2/2
If I had spare money is give it to a organization that saves dogs they are every where and most need more money
St. Landry Parish animal shelter, The cruelty investigations shelter in Franklin, LA, Bossier City Animal Control, Villalobos Rescue center
I could easily find more :( There are other smaller rescye groups that pull from the shelters to help when they can.
hurrrrgh my heart
*Sends a house for additional room for more food*
Doesnt work so well for domesticated animals.
I was so depressed by reading this I scrolled past. Then I remembered that thanks to Amazon I can donate in the US. Regards from Norway
Who just doesn't donate food? My store has a bin specifically for donations, shit gets full in a week!
Okay now i believe you guys sprry i ever doubted someone on the internet
Contact "chewy", they will help.
I give pantry/care items to a family shelter, in person. Everyone's polite & I leave more grateful for a roof over my head. I don't give $.
I sent Ace Of Hearts 33 lbs of food from Amazon (it was only $20). Thanks for the awareness @op <3
They must be a huge shelter. I'll keep them in mind in the future. None of the shelters around me are that big in metro Detroit
AFTER it has been run through the digestive systems of cats!
Yes it does.
Holy shit, I live right next to the Danville shelter!
That breaks my heart. Is there any way you could get me in contact with other struggling shelters in immediate need?
facebook.com/Shasta-Sanctuary-195492530622261/?ti=as is one in my area that does a LOT of good. They desperately need help.
I know it must have been tough having to do that with what you were trying to accomplish. All I can really say is sorry you had to.
Why would ppl do that?
I would like to know too
Do a subscription. I imagine what they already have will spoil before it gets used.
Hey, this is the exception, not the rule. Keep on doubtin', friend.
It's because they are almost always struggling. Try googling your local shelter.
However will I repay you????
Oh, yea, all those lapdogs and declawed cats will be just fine in the wild. Idiot.
I'm from Hendricks county, but live in Knox now. I'll ask friends and family if they can help out!
Yet ive personally done enough to save animals. Doesnt mean i cant be realistic about their care
My local shelter puts out an Amazon Wish List in their weekly emails, and that makes it so easy to donate! Your local shelter may have one!
If they are buried, spread the wealth! Other cats need love, too!
Prove me wrong friendo.
I understand that but some are in immediate danger of closure or being unable to provide care. Like the one in this post.
I didn't say what shelter? Sorry, bad joke. Yes, their homeless shelters too
No worries. It's all good. I just meant be good to people in general.
We use it for getting chewing gum off the stairs. But I don't think that applies here, it probabl works for other things too
Yeah I saw that. Its awesome that they received so much
