Research & Results
Studies have shown that owning a pet can be physically and mentally beneficial for people of all ages. It has been determined that just 15 minutes of interacting with our pets lower levels of cortisol, and increase production of serotonin. This results in a lower heart rate and blood pressure because our stress level has dropped.
Our clients of the pet food bank are low income elderly people or people who are experiencing homelessness with their pet. Our clients regularly used to choose to make sure they had pet has food before they had food for themself. It is their commitment to love that inspires us to help them. We are honoring their dedication by providing pet food and supplies to them so they don't have to make that choice.
We have been able to help thousands of people keep their pets during the difficult times. We are known as the 'rescue before the rescue' and have many success stories of people who overcame homelessness and isolation because of their pet. Since we started in 2011, we have distributed over 72 tons of pet food and supplies.
