Pet Food Pantry for those in need

  • 1.  Pet Food Pantry for those in need

    Back in 2020, during the height of covid, we started a pet food pantry for anyone who was in need. Its run solely on public donations of canned dog and cat food, dry food, and sometimes kitty litter, which a typically pretty costly especially for those who are struggling. Since I joined the team in 2021 a lot of people, not only from our own county but others nearby as well, have come to depend on the pet panty.  Everyone who calls looking to surrender because they can't afford food we let them know about the pantry we have, this has helped some of those animals stay in their homes. I just figured this would be something worth sharing, because even if it only helps a few animals, its a few more animals that didn't have to be rehomed or surrendered to a shelter. If you guys have any suggestions as well I would love to hear them!
