One of the many features Memphis Pets Alive! brings to the mid-south is our pet pantry which helps provide food and other essentials to pets in need. Every week there are dedicated volunteers handing out food, making home visits and assisting in any way possible to help ensure that animals are not suffering throughout our community. Recipients of assistance from the pet pantry must complete an application and demonstrate need in order to qualify for our temporary assistance.
The following are the stats for the amazing work the pet pantry has done over the last quarter:
September: 32 homes visited, 8 feral colonies served, 95 dogs served, 51 cats served, 3,672 pounds of dog food distributed, 438 pounds of cat food distributed, 9 new recipients!
