Who do we help, and why?
As a rescue organization, the amount of people calling us on a daily basis can sometimes get overwhelming. We've heard every excuse in the book as to why these families need, or want to give up their pets. However, more and more often the reason being, "I've lost my job, and cannot afford to feed my pet" or "I've come into medical bills for myself, and cannot afford to feed my pet(s)" So we came up with a great idea! Its time that we start giving back to the same community, that for years has been helping us, by helping feed those in need. Through donated goods, and funds we can help our community stay full and happy.
If you need help feeding your pets, please consider applying for help before giving them up to a shelter.
The Pet Food Pantry provides free pet food, for up to 4 months, to pet owners in Onslow County who cannot afford to feed their pets. This will keep pets fed while the owner finds additional ways to feed their pets. Pet owners can apply again in six months, if their circumstances have not changed.
