About Colorado Pet Pantry:

Colorado Pet Pantry is a food bank for family pets. They partner human food banks other welfare organizations across the state to help ease the burden for families struggling to make ends meet. Financial hardship is the number one reason loved family pets are surrendered to shelters. Whether it’s the loss of a job, or unexpected expense thousands of people a year are confronted with the decision to release the pet they can’t afford to feed in hopes that pet will find a better life. By providing pet food during times of hardship Colorado Pet Pantry works to keep beloved pets out of shelters and with the families that already care for them.

In addition to pet food banks, Colorado Pet Pantry offers and organizes the Share Program, which partners with 501c3 animal welfare & rescue organizations to swap and re-distribute surplus pet supplies and food.

Before Covid-19 it was estimated that 40% of Americans are just one missed paycheck away from poverty. And right now there’s a good portion of Colorado’s 40% waiting in line at our drive-thru food banks.

***ALL entry fees, voting dollars, reserve-a-date & calendar sales go directly to Colorado Pet Pantry’s mission to help feed Colorado’s pets & keep them out of shelters and with the families who already love them***
