Animals need food
Rocky’s Ace Hardware is partnering with Nutro Pet Foods and customers to help homeless and abandoned pets. Each of the Rocky’s Ace Hardware stores, including Rocky’s on Loudon Road (which is partnering with Concord-Merrimack County SPCA), has partnered with an area humane society or shelter to collect food for the much-forgotten animals. Customers can make donations of pet food at their local Rocky’s Ace Hardware store, which will collect all donations and deliver them to their locally chosen charity on or around Dec. 24.
