The Pet Food Pantry of OK provides free pet food and supplies each month to low-income seniors, veterans and homeless so they can focus on their own food and medical needs. 
It’s hard to imagine not having enough money to care for yourself and your companion pet. For many people this is a reality. These companion pets are family and vital their well-being, offering companionship, unconditional love, joy, comfort, friendship and acceptance – all without judgment. No one should face the decision of giving up their pet or their own food just because there isn't enough money at the end of the month.
We bridge the gap for them so they can keep their pet and focus on their own essential needs.

We make a difference in the lives of these people by providing free pet food and supplies each month so they can focus on obtaining their own food and medical needs. We help them locate other resources for themselves such as food pantries and low-cost medical services. Our clients no longer have to give up their own food or medical needs and they don't have to consider surrendering their pet.

96% of every dollar goes directly to serve our clients and their pets. We currently provide 8000 lbs of pet food each monthly to Central Oklahoma. The number of people needing our help grows daily. We operate with 2 part-time people and the rest are volunteers including our Founder/President who works a full-time job. 
While product donations are always important, we are able to purchase pet food at wholesale prices - stretching our donor's dollars further.   
CEO/Executive Director Statement As Central Oklahoma's food bank for pets, we are to pets what the Regional Food Bank and Mobile Meals are to people. By delivering free pet food and supplies to those in need, we ensure they don't have to share the food they get from food banks and mobile meals with their pets. Instead, we all work together to make a better life for these people and their pets.

Program Short-term SuccessHelpDescription of short-term achievement(s) or improvement(s) that will result from this program. The short term success means these people don't have to give up their companion just because there isn't enough money at the end of the month. 
Program Long-term SuccessHelpDescription of the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future or represent an ideal state. Providing pet food and supplies to low-income pet parents ensures they don't have to give up their own food or medical needs. They can take advantage of food banks and mobile meal deliveries knowing we will be there to do the same for their pets. 
Program Success MonitoringHelpDescription of the tools used to measure or track program impact. The Founder/President with the help of the route drivers stays in constant contact with those we serve. Our Founder/President does case management/social work to help these people find additional resources while making sure they use the money they were spending on their pet to now spend on their own food or medical needs.
Examples of Program SuccessHelpSpecific examples of changes in behaviors or testimonies of changes that demonstrate program success. Clients receiving much needed medical care now that they don't have to worry about their pet being fed or taken care of. One of our clients had received money from a family member who had passed. Her dogs needed their teeth checked as they had stopped eating due to bad teeth. She was going to take the money given to her and use to have her dogs teeth taken care of. It was going to cost her over $400 per pet, but she was willing to use that money for her pets. We called to let her know there was a resource who would do for $89. She started crying. She can now put that money aside in case of an emergency.
Description For our homeless program, we have two outreaches per month where we take pet food and supplies to those living on the streets. In addition, we provide food and supplies to Homeless Alliance who ensures homeless pet parents have pet food to take with them each day.
