New York-Lake Placid-

http://www.adirondackdailyenterprise.com/page/content.detail/id/509742.html?nav=5008

Lake Placid Ecumenical Food Pantry

Adirondack Daily Enterprise November 14, 2009

The Ecumenical Food Pantry is a nonprofit organization run by a board of directors from the churches of Lake Placid, all working together, though it is housed in the basement of St. Agnes Church.

The pantry also gives out pet food. Young said people have told her that when there is a choice, they will feed their animal before they feed themselves.


"So you want to cover your bases when it comes to the person and the animal," she said.

The Lake Placid food pantry is open from 9 a.m. to noon Fridays. For more information, people should call the food pantry at 523-8123 or Young's home number, 523-9620.

If people come from Jay or other surrounding towns, which happens occasionally because people might be too embarrassed to visit the food pantry in their hometown, Young said she will never turn them away.


"If there's a need, we fill it," Young said.

Recently there have been a large number of pets that are going hungry or wind up in shelters because their owners can no longer afford to feed them.  By offering pet food assistance we hope these people will be able to keep their beloved pet during difficult times and stay together as a family. We also hope to lessen the burden of homeless pets on local animal shelters and rescue groups.

BASIC REQUIREMENTS TO RECEIVE FOOD

Proof of unemployment, low income status, or disability with a valid driver license or some form of ID each month.
 
Agree that pets are for companionship and not for breeding or any illegal activities.

Animals must be spayed or neutered or have appointment made to be spayed/neutered.

Agree to maintain healthy condition/environment living conditions for all pets, or let someone know if this is not possible.

Agree to give fresh food and water daily.

Agree not to tether or chain dog 24/7.

Pick up food twice a month. We must limit the number of pets that are given food and this will be on a discussion/situation basis.

Agree to volunteer or give back to the food pantry when possible.


Donations needed!

We will gladly accept donations of pet food of any brand, size or variety. Kitty litter, toys, collars, leashes and other pet supplies will also be appreciated. We'll also take pet food coupons and gift certificates.  

You will soon be able to drop off pet food in various stores and veterinary offices around Chenango County.


If you have any questions about receiving or donating food, or would like to help with the pet food pantry, please contact dona@allanimalsmatter.org

Arrangements can also be made to pick up food.

Sag Harbor Food Pantry Now Accepting Pet Donations

"Everyone knows that the economy in the last year has been dreadful for both people and their pets. Pet abandonment has increased nationwide because economically-stressed people can't afford to feed themselves as well as their four-legged friends. To this end, the Sag Harbor Community Food Pantry has stepped up and offered to distribute pet food to those having trouble feeding their pets.

"Donations of pet food, dry or canned, for cats, dogs or other pets, can be brought to the First Presbyterian (Old Whalers') Church at 44 Union Street, Tuesday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Donations can be left outside the pastor's office if no one is around. Food Pantry volunteers pass by frequently to check on and put away donations.

"The Pantry itself is open every Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. A money donation can be sent to: Sag Harbor Food Pantry, P.O. 1241, Sag Harbor, NY 11963. If anyone wants to speak directly to Pantry Director Lillian Woudsma, she can be reached at 631-329-2151 or on her cell at 631-553-6515.

"When thinking about donations, don't forget the Animal Rescue Center of the Hamptons, the Southampton Animal Shelter, Last Chance Animal Rescue Fund, East Hampton Group for Wildlife, the Wildlife Rescue Center of the Hamptons, Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and the other fine agencies out here helping our fellow creatures."

"The McQuaids started a pet food pantry in their home, and have been running it for more than a decade. Area businesses and individuals donate the food.  And the McQuaids give it out to people who fall on hard times, so their pets don't have to suffer.

"McQuaid says his whole shed is typically filed with food. But following the monthly giveaway Tuesday, there's hardly any left.  And he's already thinking about next month.  "By the third week, usually the third Tuesday of the month, or the fourth Tuesday, depending how the Tuesdays fall, we have a giveaway, that we won't have enough to have a giveaway.  And that concerns me," he said.

"The McQuaids are asking for donations of all pet food.  But they say they're especially in need of canned cat food."

New York-

http://www.allaboutlabs.org/

Though our main focus is Labrador Retrievers and Lab mixes, we won't turn down a dog in need when space and funds allow. Don't be surprised to see the occasional Beagle, Shepherd, or Shar-pei on our site!

Are you an individual or family facing financial difficulties due to the current economic crisis? If so AAL may be able to help with assistance in the form of pet food banks, discounted veterinary services (including spay/neuter), temporary foster care, paying a pet deposit on rental housing or any other programs serving a similar need. Please contact us.


http://www.allaboutlabs.org/contact

Contact page link.

Note: Though the site's primary work is with Labs and Lab mixes, according to the HSUS list, they will also try to help those with other kinds of dogs and even with cats too!

New York-Massena-

October 26, 2009

"We need and welcome your support.  The Animal Food Pantry is a non-profit, all volunteer group of Massena residents who are dedicated to helping senior citizens feed their beloved pets; especially in tough economic times.  For many seniors their pet has become their family and some seniors sacrifice their own needs to ensure that their pet does not go without.  We hope that through the kindness & generosity of those who can help, we will be able to help those seniors who have done their part in the community in the past and who may need a little help now.  If you, your organization or business is able to donate food, please call (315) 769-2806 or (315) 250-0951 and arrangements will be made to pick-up food.  Any monetary donations would be greatly appreciated.  There is also a basket at the Massena Chamber of Commerce Office where you can drop off the food items."

"In its second year, the pantry distributes pet food to the elderly who would have trouble feeding their animals from December to March. This year, it may continue handing out food into April at the Massena Neighborhood Center.

"The pet food pantry originally was intended to help people over age 62, but it has been expanded to help some younger people as well.

"T"hey didn't meet the age criteria, but they were on disability and weren't working and were there at the Neighborhood Center getting food for themselves, so we gave them a load too," Mrs. Donaldson said.

"The Massena Humane Society also hands out free food to people in times of emergencies. The bags and cans the shelter provides are donations from Walmart and most are ripped or dented food containers that can't be sold.

""We have people come here almost every day," Mrs. Bradish said. "We try to let people know it is just during emergencies and tough times, rather than having them rely on it, so we can help more people.""

"The Buffalo Companion Animal Network has opened a Pet Food Pantry to help our low income neighbors. Pet owners must provide proof, such as Food Stamp cards. Print out and complete our Pet Food Pantry Application before arrival to help us get you your food more quickly.

http://www.bflocan.org/petfoodpantryapplication.doc

Application link.

"Anyone interested in receiving pet food should call Kathy Hogan at 602-7169. The pantry at 33 Chandler St. is open from 11 am to 2 pm on Mondays.

"Donations to the Pet Food Pantry and/or Buffalo Companion Animal Network are always welcome. Call (716) 602-7169 for more information. Checks can be made out to: BuffaloCAN and mailed to 201 Norwalk, Buffalo NY 14216."


More information-

http://www.bdscr.org/info/display?PageID=6035

In a sign of the recessionary times, a pet food pantry is being started in Buffalo to help low-income residents keep their animals fed and out of shelters. It is one of a growing number of pet food banks cropping up around the nation, as layoffs and cutbacks put a financial squeeze on more Americans. “A lot of people are in a situation where they’re just trying to feed their families. It’s scary,” said Kathy Hogan, president of the Buffalo Companion Animal Network and coordinator of the pet food bank program.

The small, not-for-profit organization, known as Buffalo CAN, already operates a handful of animal rescue programs, including AniMeals, which provides free dog or cat food to many disabled or housebound Meals on Wheels recipients.


AniMeals-

AniMeals is a program that delivers up to seven individual servings once a week for a dog or cat in the home of a Meals on Wheels participant. Only Meals on Wheels participants are eligible for this service.

The Buffalo Companion Animal Network in partnership with three area Meals on Wheels programs: Amherst , Kenmore-Tonawanda, and Buffalo and Erie County (MOWWNY).

If you have any questions about the AniMeals Program, please call Rosanne at 447-9699 or Pam at 491-0306.
