New Hampshire-Conway-

Rozzie May Animal Alliance
175 Kancamagus Highway
Conway, NH
P.O. Box 38
Tamworth NH 03886

When times are hard for people, animals also suffer. When families lose their homes, their animals can also become homeless, ending up in crowded shelters, depressed and confused at their abandonment. Local food pantries are seeing greater need, greater numbers. And animals are among the needy.

The Rozzie May Animal Alliance "Keeping Families Together Pet Food Drive" started collecting and distributing pet food in late August 2008 working with local human food pantries, the goal being to keep companion animals in their homes and out of shelters.

Keeping Families Together pet food drive has collected 7,086 pounds of dry dog and cat food and 1,868 cans... plus assorted treats and toys (10/08 - 12/09)  All food has been distributed to the following food pantries: Bartlett/Jackson, Gibson Center for Senior Services and Vaughan Community Services, N. Conway, Conway Congregational Church, Madison Church, St. Andrews, Tamworth and the Freedom food pantry.

HarnessLink July 7, 2009

The second Annual Rockingham Park Pet Food Drive to benefit the New Hampshire Food Bank, held over the July 4th holiday weekend to help families in need keep their beloved companion animals from going hungry, exceeded all expectations and was an even bigger success than last year's stellar effort.

While the exact total won't be known until the New Hampshire Food Bank collects and weighs the donations on Tuesday (July 7), Rockingham Park officials estimate that more than 5,000 pounds of pet food was contributed by all segments of the community over the three-day weekend. Last year, 3,000 pounds of dog and cat food were donated to the effort on the same holiday weekend.

Food pantries in the Granite State and all over the country are experiencing a dramatic increase in demand for pet food while their supplies and donations continue to shrink. Not only are people have a difficult time feeding their families, but their pets are having to do without as well. The New Hampshire Food Bank is being besieged with requests for pet food at all of its outlets and the need is growing.

New Hampshire Food Bank
62 West Brook Street
Manchester NH 03101
Phone: 603-669-9725
Fax: 603-669-0270

If you are in new Hampshire and in need of pet food, you should be able to receive some through your local food pantry served by the New Hampshire Food Bank.

Pet Food Assistance Program

We understand that sometimes making ends meet means making a list of priorities. Often times, animals are forced to be low on that list.

CVHS offers a food assistance program for residents in our service area who are challenged to meet the nutritional needs of their dog or cat due to financial burden.

Trying times can be temporary and with a little assistance, a pet owner can often find a way to keep their pet in their home. Keeping pets in their homes benefits the owner, the animals and CVHS. The owner isn't forced to surrender its beloved pet, the animal doesn't have to go through a stressful transition, and there's more room left in our shelter for other animals in need.

Please call CVHS at (603) 749-5322, x105 to learn more.


Foster's Daily Democrat March 25, 2010

"The number of animals arriving at the doors of the Cocheco Valley Humane Society has greatly increased over the last few years due to the challenging economic times. Many owners have had to surrender their beloved pets because they can no longer afford to care for them. CVHS supports the human, animal bond and would love to see a family pet remain in their home; it benefits not only the pet but the family. If feeding your pet has become an expense you can no longer afford, we are pleased to offer an alternative to surrendering your pet, the Pet Food Assistance Program.

"After completing an application and being approved, CVHS can provide food for your dog or cat. You must verify your income and your animal(s) must be spayed or neutered. If the animal is not spayed or neutered, CVHS can offer assistance (Plan B, low cost altering locations). If you would like more information or an application, please call (603) 649-5322, ext. 105. Also, if you know someone who is homebound and has a pet that may need pet food assistance, please let us know."

Making Ends Meet

The Concord-Merrimack County SPCA is hoping to help pet owners with our Pet Food Program. Pet owners who need temporary assistance with feeding their pets may stop by the shelter and they will be given the appropriate amount of food for their pets. During food distribution pet owners will be asked a few simple questions to be sure we are helping those who are in need of this program.

WMUR-9--Manchester, New Hampshire--

"The Manchester Animal Shelter has opened a new Pet Food Pantry to help families struggling to care for their pets in this economy.

"The shelter has seen a rise in pet owners asking for help, and a rise in abandoned animals.

"The new pet food pantry fills its shelves with donated food and helps families feed their pets, so the pets can stay in their homes.

"The new pet food pantry also gives the shelter a chance to see more pets to make sure they're healthy, spayed and neutered.

"Donations are being accepted for the pet food pantry at the Manchester Animal Shelter."

Manchester Animal Shelter
490 Dunbarton Road
Manchester, NH 03102
P.O. Box 393
Manchester, NH 03105
(603) 628-3544

Due to the struggling economy, the Friends of the Manchester Animal Shelter has established a Pet Food Pantry for those pet owners in need. This program enables families to keep their pets while spending their limited resources on living expenses for themselves. FMAS is hoping, that by coming to the aid of these pet owners, they will be able to keep their beloved pets instead of finding them a new home, surrendering to a shelter or abandoning them. FMAS feels this program literally makes a difference between keeping a pet and having to give the pet up.

To be eligible for this program, owners must be low income (no proof will be needed) and the pets must be spayed or neutered. If your pets are not altered, we will arrange low cost spay/neuter for your pet.

Food may be picked at the Manchester Animal Shelter during our normal business hours.

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 10 - 4 pm.
Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6 - 8 pm.
Saturday 10 - 4 pm.

We highly recommend you call the shelter ahead of time to make sure we have enough food in stock.

We welcome cash donations for this program as well as dog and cat food (wet and dry) and cat litter. Food donations may be dropped off at the shelter or at our collection bins;

Hannaford Supermarket on Hanover Street
Hannaford Supermarket on John E. Devine Drive
Shaw's Supermarket on South Willow Street
Pet Quarters on South Willow Street

The Pet Pantry

The town has its own food pantry for its citizens:

"Brookline Food Pantry Collection Day Moved to Saturdays
The Brookline food pantry will be open every Saturday morning from 10:00 - 12:00 beginning February 4th for donation collection only."

Hollis-Brookline 28 December 2012

"Goldie Bourassa, of Brookline, and founder of the Pet Pantry, was thrilled to hear that Megan wanted to support the effort.

"The Pet Pantry, which started three years ago, is housed in the same building as the local Brookline food pantry, and families that have been screened are given free access to dry and wet food, supplies such as litter and bedding, and on occasion a few toys for their family pets.

"The Pet Pantry is a year-round effort, and Bourassa is especially pleased with the abundance of donations and general awareness from the community as a direct result of Megan’s efforts.

“"We’ve got a really good supply, and that’s important, because with the fluctuations of the economy, we have a lot of need. When it comes to providing for a family, pets are often at the bottom of the food chain. We’re trying to keep everyone together and provided for,” Bourassa said.

"For more information, to make a donation or to volunteer, contact Bourassa at 320-0758."
