Today’s event- distributing tons of much needed pet food to SW Philly residents- was the culmination of weeks of planning and a month long pet food collection. We were able to distribute this pet food to families in need because our donors are so generous and sent us boxes of pet food from our Amazon wish list, Pet Valu gave us a pallet of pet food, our super fantastic volunteers collected pet food throughout the state and our friends at Finance of America Cares supported us with a $2500 grant, which we happily spent on wet/dry cat food and cat litter. Diana has never been so excited!
When we first founded Philadoptables, our mission was to support the city’s open in take animal shelter ( now ACCT Philly ) and through the years we’ve grown to include rescues who pull from the city shelter, community cats, and owned pets in need. We are very excited to take the next step and do more in the community with amazing groups like Philly Auto and Parole (PAAP).
Please enjoy these pics of us, braving the wind, and helping hungry pets! Much thanks to The Arrimour Group for lending us their giant truck to transport our food and of course or partners today, PAAP, who organized, promoted, and hosted the pet food pantry.
