Help homeless animals get
food, shelter and forever homes
According to the American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, about 7.6 million dogs, cats and other pets are taken in by shelters across the United States every year. The cost of providing food, shelter, medical care and adoption services for so many homeless animals is substantial, and humane organizations often depend on donations to keep going. To help the local organizations that help our furry friends, First Financial Bank is holding a “Paws for the Cause” drive from February 13 through March 17.
How to donate
You’ll find donation boxes for food and supplies and cash donation boxes in every First Financial lobby throughout our service area.
Our employees in each county selected the nonprofit organization to receive the donations from the drive. All donations made in your county will stay in your county, and First Financial Corporation will also make a monetary contribution to each of the designated organizations.

Of course, cash is always welcome because it allows organizations to purchase exactly what they need.
