Pawsitive Pantry - what a great concept and what an incredible need this organization fills! Bottom line - it insures that animals can be fed and families already experiencing desperate issues with the recession, can keep their loving dogs and cats embraced within the family circle, where they are needed more than ever. Hats off to its founder, Jen Bennett, and all of the volunteers who make this work on such a broad scale. It is a model that has been copied in other regions, because it works so well and makes so much sense!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the pleasure of hearing the stories of families who have been able to keep pets, they were certain they would have to give up since they could no longer afford to feed them.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
make sure that more people know about the incredible work that is being done by this amazing group of dedicated volunteers.
Donor & had a few conversations with Jen when she was setting up the organization to help her think through some of the fundraising efforts.
