Supporting Rescues & Providing Food

Our History

A Pet’s Pantry Society is a non-profit organization located in southwest Edmonton. Our mission is to facilitate partnerships with rescues to grow the community. By working with local rescues, our goal is to ease the burden created due to a lack of resources so that more funding can be directed to critical medical care.

We have been working hard since November 2014 to achieve this goal and we are already making a difference in the daily operations of the rescues in our network. Between November 15 and December 31st, 2014, we were able to distribute over 2500lbs of food to over 20 rescues! The money that these rescues would have spent on food that they no longer had to buy was put into outstanding vet bills.

We have been able to achieve this with the start of Edmonton’s first Pet Food Bank for rescues. We have several pet stores and veterinary clinics throughout the city that are hosting one of our Pantry Boxes for us as well as other businesses who are contributing to A Pet’s Pantry Society in other ways. We call these businesses our Corporate Sponsors.  We empty the Pantry Boxes weekly and distribute the donations to our rescues according to what each rescue needs. Our rescues provide us with a “Wish List” of items needed on a regular basis and email us with any special requests.

A Pet’s Pantry Society is two-fold. The second part of A Pet’s Pantry Society is our Pawtner Program. We have teamed up with local small businesses to help them grow through word of mouth advertising and cross-promoting on social media in exchange for donations of material goods or a percentage of monthly sales/fundraisers and volunteer hours. Already, the small graphic design company that joined our Pawtner Program in January is so busy with new contracts that we have had to bring a second graphic design company on to help us with our own website and promotional materials!

We know we cannot do any of this without the support of the community and we are extremely grateful and humbled by the support we have received from Edmontonians in our journey to build and establish our non-profit organization. Material donations we receive are used to fill our rescue Wish Lists. We occasionally receive requests for special items that are not frequently donated, such as pee pads. When this happens, we use monetary donations to purchase these items for our rescues which our rescues greatly appreciate.

The more donations we receive, whether monetary or material, the more we are able to give to our rescues. This means our rescues can save more money to put towards vet bills rather than spend that money on pet food and supplies. In doing so, more lives can be saved and rescues can continue operating without the constant worry of how they will pay for pet food, supplies, vet bills, fuel for their vehicles, and more. With the exception of four rescues in our network of twenty-three, our rescues are small operations that are not as “popular” as the bigger ones and do not receive the publicity and funding that the bigger ones get. Therefore, being the “underdogs”, having a pet food bank to turn to is a big relief to them.

What Drives Us

Our Mission

We strive to support rescues with much needed support. We provide food, pet toys and much more to the rescues in need, so they may use their funding towards medical treatments and other important services needed to take care of the animals.
