Kudos to this organization. Pet owners are apt to feed their pets before they feed themselves so this is one burden that they don't have. This service also helps the owners keep their trusted pets rather than overload the Humane Society and most of all, the owners and pets have the companionship that feeds their souls...a win, win for all in these hard times.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

working with the organization from the near start.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to get more young people involved on a regular basis.

The work the pantry does is incredible. I volunteer and deliver to two different food shelters and the people there, both workers and users of the pantry, stop me every time and are so so grateful. In these times that are so hard for individuals and families, to be forced to give up a valued member of the family like a pet or to not be able to provide well for them is a much too painful and unnecessary thing to occur. And the group that runs the pantry are dedicated and seem to have their priorities straight. Woofs to all . . .

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the towns i live in and near by.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

work to have sister organizations open in every state and city and town.

EVERYONE involved at Pawsitive Pantry is very organized, helpful, thoughtful, and they have a fun time while promoting a good cause.

It is truly noteworthy and ethical to support people who are in need of short term assistance, and help them foster the best environment for their existing pets during times of travail, easing the burden of financial distress caused by unemployment , illness or injury, or unforeseen difficulties; Pawsitve Pantry does it!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Hearing some accounts of people in need being very thankful that this service exists. The Pantry also helps to put surplus pet food stock, supplied by major corporations, to good use on a philanthropic level.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Ask the thankful beneficiaries of this honorable service to lend a helping hand in the process when and once they can.

My personal belief is that there is nothing more reassuring during times of duress than a loving pet. This organization allows owners to keep their pets during financially stressful times.
All profits for this organization go directly towards providing food for dogs and cats.
The woman who started Pawsitive Pantry has created an organization comprised of very dedicated volunteers.......

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

being told by a recipient of the donated food how grateful they were.....

Pawsitive Pantry rocks. The passion behind pets is one thing. But really it's about hope.

Anyone who has ever loved a cat or dog, or even knows someone who has, knows how incredibly important that pet is to it's person in good times and especially bad. The idea that someone would have to relinquish responsibility because of a temporary (hopefully) hard time is just heartbreaking for the person and the pet. PP is there to make sure there are options.

The volunteers and founder are some of the most fun and big-hearted people around too. What's better than that?

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Watching the people they've helped.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

establish a growth plan so it can help more people.

Pawsitive Pantry provides pet food to area food shelters so that people who are in need of assistance may get pet food at the same time they pick up food for themselves. This enables people to be able to keep their pets and ensures that the pets get the food they need.

The pantry is a well organized volunteer effort that I am happy to be involved with.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have referred people to the food shelfs for petfood, knowing that because of the pantry they would be able to obtain it for their pet.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

none
