What can I say about this place? They do absolutely great work in the community. They help keep pets with their guardians during financially difficult times. This means less animals abandoned and less animals in shelters. What's not to like about that? All of the people that volunteer here really do care about their community.

Bi-State Pet Food Pantry is a great resource for the St. Louis area. Helping people keep their pets is an amazing feeling. I could never imagine choosing between my bills or feeding my pets. Bi-State helps solve that dilemma for many families. The pantry has several ways people can volunteer, so there is something for everyone. Bi-State is a great organization that I am proud to be a volunteer for.

Families and their pets have deep connections that come from experiences, compassion and joy. Pet Food Pantry and all the people who volunteer with it are committed to keeping people and pets together. PFP is a great opportunity to become engaged in the community, meet some fantastic folks, and help those, animal and human, who need it.

I am a volunteer and a client of Bi-State Pet Food Pantry. I have been unemployed since 2009, and if it weren't for them, my dog would not still be with us. I found this great organization in 2010. They have been a god-send. I try to give back and donate my time once a month. The organizers are great and understand what people like us are going through. They work hard at keeping people and their pets together.

Bi-State is doing wonderful work for pets and their owners in this hard economic climate. They help pets stay in heir home by providing food and other basics to families who can't afford it. This helps keep pets out of shelters and from being euthanized! Brilliant work !
