About Feed Fido and Fluffy – HWAH Pet Pantry
We were humbled by the generosity of so many friends and followers who donated the essential supplies we needed to take care of our residents at the beginning of the pandemic. Their quick response and generous donations led us to believe that with their assistance, we could also help needy families feed their pets during a difficult time and beyond. And so, the “Feed Fido and Fluffy” HWAH Pet Pantry was established in 2020!
We connected with organizations in our area already delivering groceries to shut-ins and families in need, and they added a pet food option to their delivery. On May 6, 2020, our first distribution to these local food banks was 200 lbs. of kibble and more than 150 cans of dog and cat food, and we soon doubled our distribution.
With the help of some of our rescue partners (Gray Face Acres Senior Dog Rescue, LovePaws, Brew Beagles, PetConnect, K-9 Lifesavers, and others) we’ve also been able to provide food to many low-income pet parents. As donations have continued to come in, we expanded the program to assist seniors and disabled folks living in low-income independent living facilities.
