The Pet Pantry is a volunteer-based program that operates through the APCSM animal shelter. Our mission is to distribute pet food and relate pet items to families in need in order to keep pets and their families together in times of hardship. The Pet Pantry was founded on the idea of helping those in need.
When you help a neighbor provide for their animal companions, you help relieve financial pressure for those who are enduring economic hardship.
It is no secret that many people in our communities are feeling the negative effects of this pandemic.
But even aside from that, people everyday experience hardship that makes it difficult to stay afloat. Some of our clients are living in poverty, have no place to live, are caring for sick loved ones, have been laid off - you name it.
Some of our clients live alone - except for their dogs and cats. Their animals are a source of comfort and unconditional love.
Some of the things we take for granted, other people would give anything to have. Even a little help is better than none at all.
