Rescue Pet Food Program
In 2016, after seeing the success of Animal House Project’s Companion Pet Food Pantry and impressed with the vetting process that we had created, we were approached by a National Pet Food Manufacturer. Our Board of Directors at the time, was invited to California to meet with their senior staff to discuss a Novel idea that they wanted to pursue – A Rescue Pet Food Pantry But for smaller 501 c3 rescues. After much debate and thought, we felt that it was a viable idea and set out to find a temporary larger location to meet the initial food donations that were going to be sent. Seven tractor trailers were sent carrying 700,000 lbs of wet and dry dog and cat food and we had 8 weeks to donate the food to vetted rescues and shelters who had their 501 (c) 3 paperwork. And the rest they say is History. From 2016 through 2020, Animal House Project’s Rescue Food Pantry has helped well over 350 rescues from New England, south to Georgia and Mississippi to Texas and donated over 3.5 million pounds of food. While the food is donated to these organizations (thus freeing up their budgeted funds for veterinary care), our rescue and shelter partners are asked to provide a donation to help offset the cost of propane; insurance; tractor trailer costs for large food pick-ups; pest control etc.
If you are a Board President or a Director of a Rescue or Smaller shelter and need help, below is an application as well as a questionnaire that we need completed. Our e-mail address to receive these documents plus a copy of your 501 (c) 3 is firstname.lastname@example.org
