I believe the service provide by this group is so important. I love this group because they help people out who are having a tough time making ends meet by providing food for their pets. When people fall on hard times due to loss of income they look for ways to cut back and for many giving up a pet becomes an option. This organization helps keep pets in their homes where they are needed to give the unconditional love we all need.

Bi State pet food pantry is made up of bunch of people who love and care for animals, not just their own but animals of people who are in need of a little assistance. I am proud to say that I have donated to this great organization and applaud their efforts to make our community a better place.

When I first heard about Bi-State Pet Food Pantry, I thought it was such a great idea. There are food banks for people, why not pets? Far too many people have surrendered their pets to shelters in this economic downturn because they could not afford to. BSPFP steps in, verifies their need, and provides them with the food they need to keep their pets in their homes. Keeping People and Pets together is what they do and they have far exceeded what I originally thought they could do.

How horrible it would be to have to give up your beloved pet during a difficult financial time, because you could not afford to feed it. This nonprofit is vital to the pets - and people who own the pets - in the St. Louis area. While I have not had the time to volunteer as of yet, I am a repeat-donor and will continue to donate. This organization was the dream of two wonderful women who wanted to help "keep people and pets together." It helps keep additional animals from being placed in shelters - and in turn keeps the pets in the loving homes they know. They have helped countless furry friends and have given out thousands upon thousands of pounds of food and have helped SO many. I cannot say enough great things about this nonprofit!

As a person who helps spread the word about animals at local shelters, I can tell you that many are turned in because of the current economic conditions. Families just can't afford to feed their pets. Because of great organizations like Bi-State Pet Food Pantry, people can keep their fur-babies. This group is actually helping to save lives.
