Family Pantry

Providing pet food to existing human food pantries

We’ve teamed up with 11 local food pantries in Dutchess County and donated over $125,000 in pet food to aid in lessening the financial burdens of pet owners.

Collaborating with existing food pantries, instead of forming a separate pet-food pantry, eases life for those already struggling to acquire food and other necessities. Everyone should access essentials for every family member in one place.

“One of their clients actually cried when she saw the food pantry had pet food. It was then that she realized she could keep her dog.”

Testimonials

What People Say

AJ told me that they have added pet names to their roster. This way when a guest comes to the pantry, instead of asking how their dog/cat is doing, they can ask How is "Duke" doing?
Another client suffered from depression. Her doctor actually told her to adopt a dog but she wasn't sure she could afford a dog. She would come to the pantry usually very down and sad. Then she saw that the food pantry carried dog food. When she saw that she knew she could afford a dog and she adopted a dog. Now, she brings the dog with her to the food pantry to get her food and the dog's food.
I know I say it often, but please know what a blessing this is for our family members at the pantry. Thank you.
