Peninsula Pet Pantry
The Peninsula Pet Pantry is a newly created organization that provides temporary pet food and supply assistance to pet owners facing economic hardship on the Virginia Peninsula. We have expanded our services to the Middle Peninsula. The organization was founded by a group of animal lovers in Yorktown, Virginia who felt a dedicated organization to benefit the "other" members of the family was desperately needed in the Peninsula area. Through the efforts of the Pantry, the ultimate goal will be to reduce the rapidly rising rate of animal surrenders to local shelters and humane societies due to financial difficulties experienced by pet owners. The Pantry will concentrate exclusively on the cities and counties of York, Poquoson, Hampton, Newport News, James City County, and Williamsburg. Pet food pantries are being started across the country by community groups and animal shelters; the Peninsula Pet Pantry will be the first of its kind in this area! The Peninsula Pet Pantry has high aspirations! Not only does the Pantry wish to help owners but it also aims to provide the assistance to small animal shelters, foster, and rescue groups located on the Peninsula that constantly wrestle with financial constraints. In the future the Peninsula Pet Pantry would like to provide assistance to in-bound families struggling to make ends meet while caring for their pets. The Peninsula Pet Pantry is a registered 501(c)(3) corporation and all donations are taxed deductible. The 501c3 designation will allow donations received by the Peninsula Pet Pantry to be tax deductible for donors. Not only are the tax benefits important to consider but the proper federal tax designation will elevate the mission of the Peninsula Pet Pantry with the community. Please consider helping the Peninsula Pet Pantry prevent pet owners from making the agonizing decision to give up a beloved member of their family- "There's No Place Like Home".
