Helping to feed furry family members in tough times
Posted on May 16 2016
I was running in to more and more families surrendering their pets because they had fallen on hard times and could not afford to feed them or they were elderly and being forced to choose between their medications and food for their pets. Surrendering a beloved pet is very hard on both the humans and the pets. Many surrendered pets do not do well physically or emotionally in a shelter environment. Pets are not just pets, they are family members, companions and emotional support. No one should be forced to surrender their pet because they are unable to afford pet food.
Life is not always easy and tough times happen to us all. Here at No Bowl Empty Pet Food Pantry we hope to ease the burden just a little.
No Bowl Empty Pet Food Pantry is a non-profit pet food pantry offering dog/cat food, treats, toys, cat litter, puppy pads etc. free for those in need. We serve residents of Cumberland, York and Androscoggin Counties.
Clients are issued a Client Card. The card entitles them to come once a month for 6 months. At the end of 6 months we ask them to take a 3 month break. If at the end of the 3 month break they still need help they can come for an additional 6 months.
We are a judgment free zone. If you need help, we are here to help, all we ask is when you are back on your feet you make a donation either in the form of items for the pet food pantry or money to help us continue to help others.
As of February 1, 2016 we are helping to feed 282 dogs and cats each month. Just like human food banks, we depend on community support and donations of food, litter, treats and toys or money to keep us operating.
