Utah-Vernal-Uintah Basin area- November 11, 2009

To help people who are struggling to make ends meet retain their pets, the volunteer members of UROMP (Uintah Responsible Owners, Mannerly Pets) are sponsoring Vernal’s second annual pet food drive.

From Nov. 7-30, residents may donate unopened and unexpired bags or cans of dog and cat food in specially marked bins located at businesses throughout Vernal.

In 2008, UROMP volunteers collected more than 450 pounds of pet food, which was donated to and distributed by the Ashley Valley Food Pantry.

The Food Pantry Manager has said repeatedly that clients ask if the Pantry has any pet food on hand. Lorrie Ozaeta says, “Even one bag of kibble can help a family get through a rough spot and stop worrying about whether they will have to get rid of their pet in order to make ends meet.”

UROMP members hope to collect 500 pounds of pet food this year.

“Vernal residents were extremely generous with their donations to the pet food drive last year,” commented UROMP volunteer Lucy Nemec. “Although many families have been affected by the economic downturn, we hope that those who haven’t been will show the same generosity of spirit as they did last year.”

This article was submitted by UROMP - Uintah Responsible Owners, Mannerly Pets - a volunteer organization dedicated to promoting and improving interactions between people and their pets throughout the Uintah Basin. For more information about UROMP, call 790-5389.

Utah-Bountiful-Davis county-

Bountiful Community Food Pantry
480 E. 150 N.
Bountiful, UT 84010

Davis County Clipper January 14, 2010

"The downturn in the economy has been hard not only on families, but on family pets, according to Connie Curnow, a volunteer with No More Homeless Pets in Utah and Best Friends Animal Society.

"But Curnow got some major help by way of an Eagle Scout project recently – a project that resulted in a donation of 1,495 pounds of pet food to the Bountiful Community Food Pantry.

"Zachary McKee of troop 308 was the young man behind the project. The 13-year old worked with stores and in neighborhoods, leaving boxes and flyers and organizing collections and collectors over the past several months.

“"This was huge,” said Curnow, who works with other rescuers to pull animals out of shelters and save them from euthanasia. “It totally exceeded our expectations and has helped us so much.

“"A lot of people have had to make the tough decision to turn their pets in because they can’t afford to feed them,” she said. “People tell me this is like gold,” she said of the pet food.

"While Zachary’s project is complete, the need is on-going according to Curnow. Those interested in contributing can find drop-off boxes at Dr. John Martin’s Bountiful Animal Hospital and Petco in Bountiful."

Contact the food pantry for more information as to how to qualify, hours and days of operation.

Utah-Logan/Cache Valley area-

Cache Humane Society giving food aid to pet owners

"Valley pet owners who are struggling financially can turn to the Cache Humane Society for help.

"This month, the shelter started a program to provide free pet food on a temporary basis for local residents in need. The idea emerged after the nonprofit saw several people surrendering their animals in November, many of them due to economic reasons.

“"We’re trying to keep the animals in their homes,” said Alyssa Walker, office manager for the Cache Humane Society. “So we started this program in an attempt to give people that chance to get back on their feet and still be able to keep their animals.”

"To apply for the program, individuals must present some type of legal documentation indicating they are experiencing difficult times financially. Examples include Medicaid cards or proof of food stamps, Walker said.

"Two weeks of pet food — for either dogs or cats — are distributed for up to four months.

"Food can be picked up from 4 to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the shelter, located at 2370 W. 200 North in Logan. Walker noted the program will supply food for up to six animals per household. For a single average-sized dog, she estimated its owner would save roughly $30 a month on food."

Considering finding a new home for your pet because of financial hardship? Cache Humane Society may be able to help! Bring proof of your low-income status or government aid and we will sign you up for FREE pet food.

Because of limited resources, this program may begin or end at any time, and food may not be available at all times to all participants. In addition, CHS reserves the right to limit participation to those in real need and refuse participation to those who, in our opinion, can make do without. In addition, re-application is required every 3 months to reconsider the needs of the applicant.
