“It’s one less thing to worry about when I know my pets are fed. They provide a lot of hope and sometimes much needed comedic relief from the situation we find ourselves in. Despite what negative things might be going on around us, pets are happy to just be with us and make no judgments. We are the center of their world and life without them would be darker. I don’t have to feel guilty that I’m not properly taking care of my pet. It lessens the finacial burden for veterinary costs when the cost of food is covered. I’m just grateful that the founders of this pantry recognized the need for this service and how devastating it can be to give up your pet if you don’t have the resources to feed them.” happy pet parent
“As a Pet Food Pantry recipient, I consider myself blessed by the generosity and kindness of this wonderful organization. After losing my job I found myself not only in a difficult financial situation but also worrying about what would happen to my pets if I could no longer care for them. Thanks to the Pantry, that was one huge worry lifted off my shoulders. As a Pantry volunteer, I meet people every month who join me in saying “these people are angels”. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again!” Grateful pet parent
