Testimonials – “WHY I VOLUNTEER”
“I help the pantry because I can’t handle the fact that so many animals are given up and euthanized each year. My fur babies are an essential part of our family and would do everything possible to protect and feed them. While I live a comfortable life, I know it can all be taken away in an instant. I want to help others who may be going through a rough patch in their lives knowing they won’t have to give up their babies.” Brad
“I help the pantry because it keeps pets out of shelters, and in turn reduces the overall euthanization rate. Nothing bothers me more than seeing so many perfectly good dogs and cats never get a chance at being adopted simply because shelters are at maximum capacity. My dogs are my family, and I can’t imagine having to make the decision to give them up because I couldn’t afford to feed them. It’s comforting knowing that the Pantry is there for those that need it. ” Beth
“When I first learned about the Pantry I was working at an animal shelter and I saw so many animals get turned into the shelter by their owners because they could not afford to keep them. I saw the Pantry as a great opportunity to keep animals out of shelters and keep them in their homes so I knew I wanted to help. My animals are my family and if I ever fell on hard times I would hate to even have to consider giving them up because I couldn’t afford to feed them and I know many other people feel the same way and the pantry helps keep families together so owners don’t have to make those tough decisions. On distribution days it is so great to hear how people are thankful for this service and I’m thankful for this service because it means less animals in shelters.” Kathy
