We have six ways, some quick, some not, to support the Colorado Pet Pantry this month.

1. Learn about the Pet Food Bank “Lead Volunteer” Role

In 2015 we plan to grow to six monthly pet food banks (we currently hold four monthly food banks). This will allow us to help many more pets and families in different areas between Denver and Boulder. To expand, we need more volunteers who can commit to about seven hours per month. Food banks are typically held during the weekday, so a flexible schedule is a must. We’ll train you to run the pet food bank and you’ll always have support. And don’t worry about that wedding in June, we have backup plans for sick days and vacations. If you’re interested in learning more about becoming a lead volunteer for a pet food bank, please contact us.
