Welcome to A Pet's Pantry Society!
Edmonton's FIRST pet food bank for animal rescue organizations
We are Edmonton's FIRST pet food bank for animal rescue organizations!
OUR MISSION: to provide the products and the means necessary to ease the financial burden on local animal rescue organizations
OUR GOAL: to enable animal rescue organizations to dedicate more time and energy to helping animals in need
HOW DO WE DO THIS? We started Edmonton's first pet food bank for rescues!
All donations received from our community sponsors and their customers are sorted and distributed to the rescues according to what they need when they need it. Any donations a rescue gets from other sources that they do not need or cannot use can be given to us to distribute to another rescue who can use it. This saves the rescues valuable time, gas and volunteer hours from driving from location to location to collect donations when they can come to us and get what they need in one stop. The money the rescues would have used to purchase the food and supplies can then be redirected towards vet bills and the time and volunteer hours saved can be used to hold more adoption events and fundraisers. In our first year of operation (2015*), we distributed 18,095.77 lbs of dry food to 24 Edmonton and area rescues. In 2016, those numbers grew to 28,595.07 lbs and 35 rescues!
*although the organization's history extends back to October, 2014, A Pet's Pantry Society began operating under it's current (new) name and new format in January, 2015
