Our Holiday Wish List

There are so many ways that you can help the Colorado Pet Pantry, from volunteering to donating. If you’re looking for ways to make a huge difference to specific areas of the pet food bank, here’s what we need:

Help Us to Buy a Van

We’ve rented and borrowed our share of vans, large trucks, and magic carpets to move more than 50,000 lbs of pet food this year. With five monthly pet food banks on the calendar, and more coming, we need to invest in a reliable van to help transport the growing amount of pet food we distribute each year. Our goal is to raise $10,000 to buy and maintain the van. This crowdfunding page is part of the LoveAnimals and Animal Assistance Foundation #ColoradoLovesPets Holiday Giving Challenge and every donation helps us to win up to $20,000 in prizes. Donate to this special fund. (Want to donate a van? Email us!)

Help Us Keep Our Warehouse

We share our amazing warehouse with 10 human food banks. Together we are the Food Exchange Resource Network (FERN) and we’ve helped more than 50,000 people (and their pets) in seven counties. Staying together affords us tremendous cost-savings especially in this very expensive time for warehouse real estate. But the warehouse needs work and we need to raise $35,000 to get this done. An investment in this fund will allow all of the food banks, including the pet pantry, to stay in this warehouse space at about 1/15th (!) of the market rate. Donate to this special fund.

Fund a New Pet Food Bank

It costs about $3840 to fund a new pet food bank location for a year which will serve about 960 pets! This special fund will be used specifically to open a new location as soon as possible. This crowdfunding page is part of the LoveAnimals and Animal Assistance Foundation #ColoradoLovesPets Holiday Giving Challenge and every donation helps us to win up to $20,000 in prizes. Donate to this special fund.


Kick Start your Colorado Gives Day Donations on #GivingTuesday

It’s #GivingTuesday, the post-Thanksgiving/Black Friday/Cyber Monday day devoted to investing in nonprofits that are improving our world. 

Please consider the Colorado Pet Pantry as you’re making your #GivingTuesday donations. Currently we are holding five pet food banks each month in the Denver/Boulder-metro area and will soon be adding more as donations, volunteers, and pet food resources allow.

Every dollar donated is worth $5 in pet food.

To support the pet food bank, please “Schedule” a donation for Colorado Gives Day, which will officially be held on December 8. But there’s no need to wait! Simply select “CO GIVES DAY” under Donation Type when making your donation.

Colorado Gives Day

WHY SCHEDULE YOUR DONATION?

Because all donations that are scheduled for or made on December 8 will be partially matched. (And because you’re thinking about it now!)
