Great Falls Tribune December 4, 2009

The Pet Paw-See and Petco in Great Falls are teaming up to help families struggling to feed their pets during this rough economy.

A pet food pantry drive runs from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday. During those two days the public is encouraged to bring donations of all kinds for cats and dogs. Items such as food, bedding, toys and dishes will be accepted and can be dropped off at Petco, 1601 Marketplace Drive.

On Saturday, Dec. 12, and Sunday, Dec. 13, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day, eligible pet owners can pick up donations for their pets at Petco.

Those picking up donations need to bring some evidence that they are low income, such as a Medicaid card or food stamp voucher.

Unfortunately there are many people presently experiencing great financial hardship - including in the Helena area. Many have difficulties finding the resources for the basics of life such as food and medicine, and fortunately there are wonderful organizations whose primary mission is to assist these individuals. The Pad for Paws Foundation is further assisting by specifically providing for the needs of the pets of these individuals and families.

Paws Pantry started feeding hungry pets in July 2008
This program - through generous volunteers, donors and businesses - collects donations of cat and dog food, repackages the pet food, and then makes deliveries to Helena Food Share, God’s Love, and numerous needy families and individuals.

Need Assistance? If you, or someone you know, needs help providing meals for a pet, please call the Foundation Office at 442.7373, or send us an email.

Paws Pantry is a program sponsored by the Pad for Paws Foundation that serves Lewis & Clark County and surrounding areas. This program repackages and delivers donated pet food to Helena Food Share and God’s Love, and to families in need.

Pet Food Bank

HSWM continues to help those who need pet food assistance or who take care of feral cat colonies. We also have collars, leashes, dog bowls, dog treats and canned cat food available. So if you've run into tough financial times, email, call (549.HSWM) or stop by the shelter and we'd be happy to help out.


While there are no restrictions on how often someone can receive food, we do require that your pets are spayed or neutered or have an appointment with a vet to be altered.  Email or call the shelter at 549-HSWM to inquire about upcoming low-cost spay/neuter clinics for low-income individuals or families. 

We have donated over 10,000 pounds of pet food and supplies to individual families and feral cat colony caregivers in the past two years and continue to help people in Missoula and surrounding communities.

Call 549-HSWM or email the Program Manager to inquire about pet food availability or stop by the shelter to pick up food.

Bozeman Daily Chronicle November 18, 2009

“We have clients that give their food to their animals because they don’t have pet food,” Donna West, vice president of the Gallatin Valley Food Bank, said Tuesday. “They would rather go without eating and feed their pets.”

So for the second year in a row, a Bozeman veterinary office is conducting a Pounds 4 Hounds pet-food drive. The staff at 360 Pet Medical is collecting dog and cat food during November and distributing it to local families, the food bank and Heart of the Valley animal shelter.

So far in November, the shelter has helped 51 pet owners with food donations, nearly twice as many as the 27 it helped during the same time last year.

At the food bank, 1,218 families were served in October, nearly 50 percent more than last year, West said.

Donated pet food can be dropped off at 1104 E. Main St. For more information, call 551-2360.

Heart of the Valley Animal Shelter
1549 E. Cameron Bridge Rd
Bozeman, MT

Kibble Connection
All About the Dawg
101 North St
Butte, MT

Mt November 12, 2010

Pet food bank to open in Butte

"The owner of a Walkerville doggie day care plans to address the problem by opening a food bank for pets. Samantha Collier, owner of All About the Dawg, is taking donations of food and other pet supplies for her animal food bank.

"Kibble Connection will provide food and other supplies to people in need of basic necessities to keep their pets healthy and happy, Collier said.

“A lot of people have lost their jobs or having a tough time and they don’t want to give up their pets,” she said.

"The idea of opening an animal food bank came to Collier earlier this year when she started receiving calls from people seeking pet food. She said the Butte’s local food bank doesn’t provide pet food or supplies to needy families, so she believes there’s a need for an animal food bank in the community.

"Collier hopes to have Kibble Connection open by the end of this month.

"People are asked to donate dog and cat food, leashes, kitty litter, straw bales, blankets, collars and food and water bowls. Collier said people are welcome to donate pet food in opened bags, and she will repackage the food for distribution.

"Supplies may be dropped off or picked up at All About the Dawg, 101 North St. For more information, call 498-9875.

Contact her for more information.
