People Care Pet Pantry
WE HELP OTHERS
People Care Pet Pantry fed over 8,000 pets from the Northeast Ohio Region just last year. We screen applicants to verify financial hardship and provide the supplies necessary to help people keep their pets. We do not screen by location; we will help any screened applicant willing to drive to our pickup location.
Many families who apply for help have been laid off, are transitioning from the military or have had a medical setback. We work with shelters and animal rescues to reach people before they surrender their pets and provide aid necessary for them to keep their families intact while they work to resolve their problems.
By helping these people with their pets, we are able to help shelters reduce the influx of animal surrenders and unnecessary euthanasia, reducing their costs and securing better outcomes for people and pets.
The Process We Follow........
1) Those in need contact us by calling or texting this phone number ( 330-389-5116 ) and leaving a message
2) Either myself or one of my volunteers will then contact the person to get more information.
3) People are then put on a schedule and contacted to let them know the pick up day.
Please understand we get as many as 100 calls a day .... you must be patient and wait your turn.
