KVAL, Eugene Oregon--Lane County--

People aren't the only ones going hungry in the recession.  It has reached the point that a dog food bank has opened in Clackamas County to try to meet the need.

In Lane County, there's no such bank, but help is available.

"People are not abusing this service.  People come in here, they're genuine," says Tom Howard, manager of Lane County Animal Services.

Howard explains anyone who is strapped, who can't feed their animals, should come to the shelter in Eugene for a bag of food.

As you might guess, Food For Lane County is another resource for pet food.  This is food on a pallet that will be shipped out to one of the neighborhood pantries for distribution.

"We'll continue as long as we can and we'll solicit as many donations as we can to help the public," says Howard of LCAS.

Note: this is for cats only.

CAT-Cat Adoption Team
14175 SW Galbreath Drive
Sherwood, OR 97140
(503) 925-8903

The cat food bank is designed to help financially needy cat owners keep their furry friends. On the first Sunday of each month, CAT opens the food bank from 12-2:30 pm at their shelter, located at 14175 SW Galbreath Dr. in Sherwood.

Volunteers distribute a month’s supply of free cat and kitten food for up to four cats per family on a first come first served basis. Cat litter may also be available. Recipients are simply asked to fill out a form, be receiving some financial assistance, and provide their own transportation to the shelter. Cats should also be spayed or neutered, but folks will not be turned away if their pets are currently intact. They will be given low-cost resources and required to show they have fixed their cats.

The Cat Adoption Team is expanding the program to provide cat food to Loaves & Fishes. CAT is working with Washington County Meals on Wheels on a home delivery of cat food through Loaves and Fishes. Covey says this will help home-bound recipients keep their cats.

Quick Facts about the Cat Food Bank:

•Cat and kitten food only
•Distributed to cat owners in need of financial assistance
•Approximately one month’s supply of cat food given for up to four cats
•Open the first Sunday of the month from 12 – 2 pm
•Clients are helped for 5 consecutive months, since the food bank is designed as a temporary stop-gap
•No transportation provided to CAT’s Sherwood shelter
•CAT’s Sherwood shelter address 14175 SW Galbreath Dr., Sherwood, OR
•Donations of unopened, unexpired dry cat/kitten food and canned cat food are welcome
•Donations of clumping cat litter also accepted
•Available to any cat owner in financial need regardless of what county they reside
•At this time CAT’s Cat Food Bank is designed to help cat owners, not feral cat caregivers or rescue organizations.

CAT does ask that all cats receiving food from the Cat Food Bank be spayed/neutered. If your cat is not fixed, CAT can provide information on subsidized surgeries when you come to the food bank your first time.

Oregon-Brookings-Curry County-

"When two dogs were found tied to a bench and abandoned at Brookings’ Azalea Park on Monday, it didn’t surprise officials at the Brookings’ South Coast Humane Society (SCHS) or the Curry County Animal Shelter in Gold Beach.

"In the last year the number of abandoned pets has increased sharply in Curry County, and it’s not slowing down, according to SCHS animal care facilitator Audrey Morris and county shelter Supervisor Catherine Powers.

"Both shelters want to keep pets and their owners together, and have several programs to help keep pet families

"Both shelters have pet food available, with no questions asked.  

“We have puppy food, large dog food, small dog food, kitten and cat food,” Morris said.

"SCHS gives away 300 pounds of dog food each month to help feed dogs and keep owners and their pets together.

“"We don’t want animals to go hungry and we don’t want people to have to give up their pets,” said Morris.

"There is also a program to help owners with veterinary care. In October, SCHS spent $1,200 assisting owners with necessary care for their animals."

South Coast Humane Society

The South Coast Humane Society (SCHS), a non-profit organization serving Curry County is composed of over 300 members who are dedicated to the welfare of all animals.

Although we're located in Brookings on the Southern Oregon Coast, SCHS is as big as Curry County, Crescent City, and Smith River combined. Citizens from all these areas volunteer and donate regularly. Most volunteers have multiple duties, many while work full time at "paying" jobs as well.

"When the Cannon Beach Food Pantry opens today, everyone - and everything - will be ready.

"At 3 p.m. today, the Cannon Beach Food Pantry, located at the back of Cannon Beach Bible Church, 264 Hills Lane, will open officially. Volunteers will welcome Cannon Beach and Arch Cape residents who need the food boxes.

"Initially, the pantry will be open from 3 to 5 p.m. the third Wednesday of every month. If food and monetary donations grow and the need becomes apparent, the pantry may be open more often.

"Those coming to the food bank will have to meet certain income criteria and must be Cannon Beach or Arch Cape residents. Identification won't be required, but they will be asked to sign in with their name, address and to mark a box saying they meet the qualifications for the guidelines for emergency help. Their income also will not be verified.

"Personal items, such as toothpaste, razors and even pet food also are in the east zone."

Cannon Beach Food Pantry
Location: Back of Cannon Beach Bible Church, 264 Hills Lane.

Criteria: Cannon Beach and Arch Cape residents who need the food boxes.


Cannon Beach Gazette-Food Pantry extends services

"The normal operating hours for the Food Pantry are Wednesday afternoons from 3 to 5:30 p.m. The Pantry is located at the Cannon Beach Bible Church on Hills Street.

"All of the Food Pantry services are confidential. To receive regular food assistance, the individual (or head of household) simply needs to sign a statement of need and provide an address."

So the pantry is now open each Wednesday from 3-5:30 PM.

Oregon Food Bank

Oregon Food Bank is the hub of a network of 935 hunger-relief agencies throughout Oregon and Clark County, Wash.

Statesman Journal February 4, 2010

"Gov. Ted Kulongoski's dog, Hershey, invites the public to help feed hungry humans and their pets through "Hershey's Pet Project."

"Donations of food, including pet food, will be accepted at four Mid-Valley locations: Copper Creek Mercantile, 4415 River Road N, Keizer; Willamette Humane Society shelter, 4246 Turner Road SE, Salem; Willamette Humane Society thrift store, 548 High St. NE, Salem, and Willamette Humane Society Helping Paws resale boutique and adoption center, 3298 Lancaster Drive NE, Salem. Dove Lewis Clinic in Portland also will accept donations.

"Although the Oregon Food Bank and its 20 affiliated regional pantries feed humans, they accept donations of pet food because some people choose to feed their pets before they feed themselves."


Oregon April 15, 2010

"Portland's pet food bank has extended its reach past the city's limits through the distribution network of the Oregon Food Bank. 

"The Pongo Fund, the pet food bank that opened its doors in central Portland in November, made a contribution of 7 tons of pet food to the Oregon Food Bank this week.

"The Oregon Food Bank will distribute the pet food outside of the Portland metro area through its regional food banks, said Jean Kempe-Ware, an OFB spokeswoman.

"The distribution of pet food works in concert with OFB's goals, because people who lack the funds to buy pet food often feed their animals a portion of their own meals instead."

Willamette Humane Society’s Pet Food Bank is designed to help keep pets in homes by offering food assistance to area dog and cat owners experiencing temporary financial hardship. Food is distributed the first Saturday of each month (beginning May 1, 2010) at the shelter (located at 4246 Turner Rd. SE, Salem, Oregon) on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Anyone picking up food will be asked to fill out a short form about their pets and financial situation and to show proper identification (driver’s license or other ID) each time food is picked up. The Pet Food Bank is not intended to feed feral cats or stray animals.

"Starting Saturday, (May 1) WHS will distribute free pet food through its new Pet Food Bank to local animal owners experiencing financial hardship.

"In the new Pet Food Bank program, cat and dog food will be distributed from 10 a.m. to noon the first Saturday of each month at the shelter, 4246 Turner Road SE on a first-come, first-served basis.

"No registration is required.

"Local pet owners in need can pick up approximately a one-month supply of dry kibble for their animals.

""We will be asking people to fill out a short form about the pets they own and describing their financial situation," Kuh said.

"Anyone receiving pet food also will be asked to show identification, such as a driver's license.

"The new Pet Food Bank is supported by donations from Wal-mart, Petco, PetSmart, Target and from individuals.

"Donations also are needed to support the WHS "Animeals" program, which delivers pet food to seniors and homebound people.

""We really appreciate the help of retailers who regularly donate hundreds of pounds of food a month to keep our (programs) going," Kuh said. "We would love to hear from other stores that would like to donate unsold food

""As long as we continue to get donations, we will help as many as possible," she said.

"Donations of unopened bags of dry cat and dog food are needed most, Kuh said. Wet-food donations mostly go to feed young or sick animals at the shelter or in foster care.

"The Pet Food Bank replaces WHS's previous emergency pet food assistance program, through which people could receive help only once per quarter.

"WHS hopes that holding regular monthly distributions days will increase public awareness — and increase the numbers of donations and volunteers.

""We are hoping we can assist as many people as possible who are truly experiencing financial hardship until they can get back on their feet," Kuh said."

Grants Pass, Ore. -- "The Rogue Valley Humane Society has a full house.

"The shelter is at its maximum capacity with 24 dogs and 85 cats.  Everyday people are turned down including Daniel Foley. He found an extremely small kitten in his back yard.

""We tried to get her to drink, but she couldn't do it so I panicked. I thought we could just come here. We got this milk and we'll see if we can nurse her back to life," he said.

"The shelter couldn't take the cat, but they were able to give Foley some food from their food bank."

There is nothing on their website about the food bank-if you are in the area and need help, please contact them for more information.
