Thousands of South Jersey residents have lost their jobs and some can no longer afford to feed or keep their pets. The Pet Pantry is a giant step toward ensuring that families and their pets stay together.

“What’s happening to pets and their families throughout our region is unconscionable. When pet parents can’t afford to care for their pets they either feed them before they feed themselves or abandon them. For some, a pet is the only companion they have. This is unacceptable to us. Pets are an integral part of any family. We need pets and they need us. ” And that’s why we started the pantry.
Dr. Ken Grossman

The pantry opened March 15, 2015 with generous donations from:

• A Work In Progress Foundation
• English Creek Supply in Egg Harbor Township
• Hill’s and Royal Canin pet foods
• The 3rd and 4th grade students at Margate’s Ross School
• The parents of the pets cared for at Absecon Veterinary Hospital

Business was slow at first, but our friends at the Community FoodBank of New Jersey made sure those pets who needed food were vetted and had no more than two pets. They were also given information on where to receive no or low cost spaying, neutering and rabies shots.
