Colorado Pet Pantry is working in Boulder County to provide relief to those affected by the recent fires. The response from our community has been incredible. Now that we are a few days out from the disaster, we are taking a moment to assess the current needs of the community and develop a plan to best assist them through this disaster and into the future. We have updates in three major areas:
- Schedule of Distribution Events:
We will update here when we have a new distribution event. Past events will be removed from the list as to keep unnecessary information to a minimum. If you are in need of assistance and cannot make it to any of the listed events, please contact us directly by filling out an Emergency Form or by texting Eileen at 720-441-3111.
** We will no longer be at the Boulder Disaster Center. We will have supplies available at the Resource Distribution Center.
- Open Daily from 9AM to 7PM
- Nordstrom’s – Flatiron’s Mall in Broomfield between Dick’s Sporting Goods & Macy’s Entrance
- This is available to anyone affected by the Marshall Fire in Boulder County
- Colorado Pet Pantry Donation Needs:
Right now, monetary donations are critical. What we do requires a substantial amount of funds. This will enable us to pay for items such as storage for donations, gas to distribution events, etc. We also need more volunteers. As we add events, we will post corresponding links for volunteers to sign up. Please click below to see other volunteer opportunities available. We are accepting pet food and supplies. Click on the link below to find a list of locations in your area where you can drop off donations. The biggest need in this area are for new dog beds and toys.
- Nonprofit Community Network:
With a disaster like this, it takes many organizations working together to create the adequate response. Right now, the number one need is monetary donations. Physical donations will be needed in the future, as those affected begin to rebuild their lives. Here are links to several of the nonprofits working to aid those affected by the fires.
- Community Foundation Boulder County Wildfire Fund: Cash Donations
