People Care Pet Pantry
From - Rene Lamp, President / Founder - People Care Pet Pantry
I want to take a minute before things get even crazier and busy to thank each and every one of you who have and are donating for the Share The Love.
There are so many out there right now shopping, putting blessing bags together,gathering gently used and new items,transporting,helping sort,helping spread the word to those in need and to those that want to help!
To all of you I want to share a text I got this evening that left me in tears and reminded me of why I do this...the text simply said "Thank you for caring about us who are struggling"
That text is for every one of you who are taking any part in this Share The Love Event. Nothing you are doing is too small and everyone of you are making a bigger difference in people's lives then you know. I get the privilege of hearing the gratitude and hear them literally cry with relief when I get their wishlists and tell them what all we are going to help them with that day from kids toys to clothes to pet toys and pet food. For any coming out on the 10th to help you will too! Every one of you are awesome and have filled my heart with the same gratitude and tears that I am hearing from others!!!!
This is going to be the biggest year ever and because of each of YOU we are looking at tripling (at least) what we have done in prior years. That is triple the pets, the families, and the kids!!!!!
If I don't put individual thank yous please know it is not because I don't appreciate what you are doing or it is not important, it is only because it is crunch time and I am a bit crazy from now until the distribution is done.
For those of you that have asked what we do with anything that may be left. There should not be much left because I work all the way until distribution day getting people in and we help others after all the way to Christmas eve by having them come to my house if they need food or toys or other items. We also work with other organizations and churches after the distribution to make sure there is not a family in any of the counties we serve that is not going to have a Christmas!
If after all of that (ha ha) there is anything left we will put it up for next Christmas or for times they be needed to help families through the next year!
Thank you again,I love you all!I will update as often as I can and I will give you an update closer to distribution and of course pics and an update after!

I want to take a minute to thank you for your continuing support of People Care Pet Pantry!
It is only because of people like you that we are able to continue doing what we do. Because of your support in 2017 we were able to :
Going into 2018 we already have more calls for help then we did January of 2017.
When my husband and I started the pet food pantry in 2009, we were helping 10 families a month to keep their pets.
We are currently helping over 300 families a month in three counties. We work hard to, not only supply pet food and supplies, but to also provide resources needed for the families to help them get back on their feet.
We could not do any of this without you!!!
