GIVING THANKS FOOD DRIVE
Roto-Rooter branches across the country participate in our annual Pet Rescues Giving Thanks Food Drive each November. Customers can donate 2 canned goods in return for 10% off any plumbing or drain service (up to $60 off) at participating locations. The canned goods can be human or pet food – we will make a donation to a local food bank as well as your neighborhood Humane Society or pet shelter.

How long have you been with Roto-Rooter?
I've worked with the Jacksonville Branch since October 2019.
Do you have pets?
Yep! I have three cats.
Favorite pet rescue experience?
My first was this past week - I was able to save a 1.5 month old stray kitten that had somehow become trapped in the shower pan of a master bath shower. I had to go through the customer's crawlspace to recover the kitten.
Craziest item/animal you’ve found in a drain?
Definitely the cat I mentioned above!
