A HELPING HAND IN TIMES OF NEED.

1 in 4 people in the Springfield, Missouri area experience food insecurity. While we have many wonderful organizations helping our neighbors in times of economic hardship, we noticed a lack of help available for a key member of the family–pets!

Financial instability is one of the top ten reasons families are forced to surrender their pets to shelters. We strive to bridge the gap and keep families together.

PAWS Pet Pantry offers assistance in times of financial difficulty by providing pet food, supplies, and limited veterinary assistance to those who need it.

PET PANTRY

No one should choose between dinner on the table or keeping their beloved pet. Our pet pantry provides quality, nutritious pet foods to economically disadvantaged members of our community.
