Tanya Querry, marketing manager for U Stor It York, recently delivered a trunkful of supplies for pets and farm animals to the Animal Rescue Food Bank in Warrington Township, which is run by Barry and Carla Haynes. U Stor It had been collecting the donations for several weeks.
Querry said there was still a bit more back at the office. “I probably have about 500 pounds,” she said.
The donations included treats, food, cleaning supplies — a little bit of everything, including food for horses and chickens.
There to help unload and store the donations were ARF volunteers Frank and Dee Smith.
After unloading the donations, the group discussed ARF, the economy and rescuing animals.

Although it’s been around for quite a while, many people have never heard of the Animal Rescue Food Bank, also known as ARF.
Barry and Carla Haynes of Warrington Township founded Animal Rescue Food Bank approximately 20 years ago. ARF supplies food, toys, treats and more to homeless animals in shelters and rescues.
ARF does not supply food to individual pet owners. “They must be rescues and shelters — it’s all for the homeless animals,” Carla Haynes said.
