In 2009 WAG established a partnership with Faith In Serving Humanities (FISH), a Monroe-based outreach ministry providing food and other needed services to our community, and the WAG Pet Food Pantry was born.
WAG provides pet food and FISH provides storage and manpower to distribute the pet food to the public. In the early years we purchased most of the food, but eventually the community came on board to help through pet food drives and donations. Centerville Walmart is a regular donor (every two weeks). Petsmart, Tractor Supply, West Walton Feed and other local businesses also make periodic donations. Schools groups team up to challenge each other in collecting food items. Individual animal lovers drop off bags and boxes or conduct their own pet food drives, making a tremendous difference. An estimated 65,000 lbs of pet food has been delivered since the pantry was created. This food supply is helping people and their pets stay together and keeping animals healthy and well-fed
A big THANK YOU to all our donors who have supported the pet food pantry over the years. We’re grateful for your commitment – you’re making a difference in the lives of others!
