Bank Independent kicks off tenth annual Shelter Share 

Bank Independent will kick off its tenth annual Shelter Share drive to benefit local animal shelters on May 1.  All locations of Bank Independent will serve as donation points for pet food and supplies designated for local animal shelters. The drive will end May 19 with Adoption Day, as Bank Independent will sponsor the adoption application fee for animals adopted from partner shelters.

The 2022 Shelter Share collected and distributed more than 740 items and more than $11,175 in donations to shelters in northwest Alabama last year. Donations were used to supplement resources available to local shelters. The bank also sponsored 81 pet adoptions across partner animal shelters.  

“Bank Independent is proud to support Shelter Share as part of our Helping Hands Foundation,” said Rick Wardlaw, CEO of Bank Independent. “We are proud to partner with the local shelters in our footprint so that our team members and customers have an opportunity to give back. These shelters rely heavily on community support to meet the needs of the animals in their care, and we are proud to be a small part of that backing.”

Between May 1-19, every Bank Independent sales office will accept donations of pet food, kitty litter, paper towels, nursing bottles, cleaning supplies, first aid items, used blankets, bedding and towels.  

The donated supplies will be delivered by bank employees to the Athens Limestone County Animal Shelter, Colbert County Animal Shelter, HOPE in Franklin County, Decatur Animal Services, Huntsville Animal Services, Lawrence County Animal Shelter, Morgan County Animal Shelter and Florence Lauderdale Animal Shelter in early March.
