Bi-State Named June Spotlight Organization

Each month, Bi-State Pet Food Pantry distributes pet food to 300 families in our pet community, to ensure that these much loved pets stay with their families, who need just a bit of extra help.

Because of all the work they do to keep pets and their families together, Treats Unleashed has selected Bi-State Pet Food Pantry as its Spotlight Organization for June. There are many groups in the area who provide assistance to families in need of food, clothing, and housing, but only one who provides much needed food to the family pet.

Bi-State Pet Food Pantry operates solely on volunteers’ time and efforts with six board members and nearly 50 volunteers. When they started in 2010, they gave away 300 pounds of pet food. In 2013, they assisted almost 2,000 pets and distributed 153,000 pounds of food. For families who fall on hard times, Bi-State Pet Food Pantry is a place they can turn to help them care for their four-legged family members. Bi-State also partners with Gateway Pet Guardians to help with their outreach in the metro east area.

Spotlight treats are 95 cents each, and all proceeds will be donated to Bi-State Pet Food Pantry! The proceeds from our June Spotlight treats will be used to provide pet food for those families that turn to them for help.

Please consider purchasing a small bag of dog or cat food to add to the donation for Bi-State. Thank you for your support of Bi-State Pet Food Pantry this month!
