Pet Food Pantry helping people feed pets during the pandemic is in need of donations

Local News

With layoffs and job losses, the coronavirus pandemic has forced many families to stretch their food dollars. Pet food can put a real strain on the budget forcing people to make tough choices.

That is where Hidden Paws Network has come in.

The non-profit has been helping pet owners take care of their pets during these tough times with a free food bank and now they need your help.

Since April their Pet Food Pantry has helped more than 16,000 pets and their owners. Giving out more than 101,000 meals plus six tons of cat litter.

But now their shelves are running low and they need donations because the need is high, “After the pandemic started we started to receive a lot of calls ‘Hey can you foster our pet’ ‘Hey can you watch after our pet while we’re just trying to make ends meet during this pandemic. ‘It’s been really hard on everyone and its just kind of been a lifeline for people in Northeast Wisconsin. It’s probably the busiest we’ve been since we started this food bank,” explained Joshua Jablonski, founder, Hidden Paws Network, Inc. Pet Food Bank.

Hidden Paws Network is holding a pet food drive Saturday, October 3rd from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. to restock their shelves.

They need all types of pet food, cat litter and monetary donations. They also supply leashes, collars, blankets, food and water bowls, anything a pet owner may need. So they are also looking for those types of donations.
