Pet Pantry celebrates 10th anniversary

The Pet Pantry is celebrating

its 10th Anniversary this month

The Pet Pantry is a not-for-profit group that serves Chautauqua County. It provides free pet food for qualifying low income families. The group also helps them get their pets spayed and neutered.

In February 2009, Pet Pantry opened its doors in the old church on the corner of Central Avenue and Fifth Street in Dunkirk. Pet Pantry’s current location is on Lark Street between Fourth and Fifth streets in Dunkirk. The group is open on Tuesday 6-8 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Thanks to the Chautauqua County Humane Society in Jamestown, last year the group held a a series of Healthy Pet Clinics that were open to the public. CCHS will be offering this program again this year. The Pet Pantry is happy to offer its location to them for the north county clinics.

Pet Pantry is a totally volunteer group. It is able to help the community through donations and fundraising. Its main fundraisers are The Holiday Craft Show in November and The Mothers’ Day Craft Show on May 11-12. Pet Pantry appreciates the support from the community and could not do this without the community’s help.
