Nebraska-Scotts Bluff-

Skipper's Cupboard
1325 Ave "I"
Scottsbluff, Nebraska69361
(308) 672-5015

Welcome to Skipper's Cupboard, Inc., a non-profit organization pantry serving responsible pet owners in Western Nebraska who struggle to supply their animal companions with food on a regular basis.

The founders, Steve and Becky Morgheim, envision a time in Scotts Bluff (NE) and its surrounding counties when no pet owner will be forced to abandon, neglect, or abuse a cherished companion for lack of animal food resources.

Our mission is to insure that lack of access to animal food resources never breaks the bond between responsible pet owners and their animal companions.

Contact them for more information.

Iowa-Sioux City area-


"The winter weather makes difficult times seem even harder for struggling families. That's why the Food Bank of Siouxland is hoping to lend a helping hand by gathering donations that help Siouxland's four-legged family members."

Food Bank of Siouxland
1313 - 11th Street
Sioux City, IA 51105
Phone: (712)255-9741
Fax: (712)255-3116

The Food Bank strives to be responsive to the needs of its agencies, donors and volunteers.We were established to provide a year-round source of food to these organizations. Today our outreach includes fourteen counties in the tri-state area.

Please join Siouxland Paw Prints Rescue, a nonprofit pet rescue organization dedicated to the health and welfare of companion animals in Siouxland, and the Food Bank of Siouxland for the first annual pet food drive from November 20, 2009 to December 20, 2009. There is a tremendous and immediate need for both cat and dog food in hundreds of homes throughout Siouxland.  Your donation will help keep furry family members healthy and in their warm, loving homes instead of being surrendered to area shelters.

Any size, dry or canned, cat or dog food can be dropped off at PetSmart, located at the Lakeport Commons, both Bomgaars locations, all Fareway stores, The Train Depot, the STARS Barn, Sioux City Physical Therapy, Hinton Community School, Woodbury Central School of Moville and the Moville Public Library, and Bed and Biscuit Doggy Daycare.

All donated pet food will be distributed through the Food Bank of Siouxland, and their agency food pantries and feeding programs to qualified individuals and families. The Food Bank of Siouxland is a nonprofit organization that distributes food to nearly 200 charitable agencies in a 14-county, tri-state area. Agencies served include emergency food pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers, homeless and domestic violence shelters, day care facilities, nursing homes, and community homes for the disabled.

If you have any “furr”ther questions, please call Beth Storm, of SPPR, at 253-4099 or 259-6959.

Nebraska-Omaha- October 9, 2009

Food Bank Helping Pets Too

"The cat-food kitty at the Nebraska Humane Society just grew by 4,600 pounds.

"The Humane Society received a donation of cat food from the Food Bank on Thursday.

"When Food Bank officials heard the Humane Society was running short of cat food to give to people having trouble feeding their pets, the donation made sense.

“"We are happy to partner with our friends at the Nebraska Humane Society to meet the need of pet owners as well as the homeless animals in the shelter,” said Susan Ogborn, president-CEO of the Food Bank.

"Pam Wiese, spokeswoman for the Humane Society, called the donation wonderful.

“"Donated food goes into our food pantry and then goes back out to help those people who may be hitting hard times, who may just need a little tide-over for a month or two,” she said.

According to the news story, Nebraska Humane Society does distribute pet food to those in need.  Suggest contacting them as there's nothing specific on their website re: pet food pantry.

Nebraska Humane Society
8929 Fort Street
Omaha, Nebraska 68134
Call Us: (402) 444-7800
Fax us: (402) 546-1476

For seniors on a fixed income, one emergency can mean the difference between paying the electric bill or feeding the dog.  To help our elderly residents afford their companion animals, the Nebraska Humane society has a unique program.  Once a month, the shelter will deliver free pet food to any senior, with a licensed companion animal, who qualifies for Meals on Wheels. We understand that nurturing pets also nurtures their companions—on many different levels!   

Ask about qualifying for Animeals at the Eastern Nebraska Office on Aging when you sign up for Meals on Wheels at 444-6766.

Homeward Bound in the Heartland

WOWT September  15, 2010

"Homeward Bound helps in other ways, too. Cisney delivers pet food to 41 families monthly, who otherwise would not be able to afford to care for their pets.

"Marge Rutschman is on a fixed income and without the program, she'd lose her best friend, her cat Charlie. "I'm just so happy to know her, she's made my life a lot easier."

Their website doesn't have any information about the Pet Food program; if you are in this area and need help, please contact them.
