This organization is for the "Familys" of animal lovers. What a fantastic idea that needs a larger platform to really propel this great cause into the lime-light. Since, I have known the creators of this pantry, they have always had the goal of the animals in mind and have never varied from it. The Animals Welfare of 2012 is a strong sentence that needs to keep going well into the year and for years to come. I am a proud follower of this charity and good friend to them when they send out the call.
