“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.” ~Elizabeth Andrew
Every month, volunteers run the Colorado Pet Pantry pet food banks, pick up pet food at our collection partners, staff tables at events, and type up endless paperwork. We love doing it because we know our clients and their pets are so relieved to have access to food.
It’s truly amazing. In 2014, our volunteers gave 1,100+ hours to distribute 30,553 pounds of pet food, helping 1,500 families in the Denver/Boulder-metro area to feed 3,296 pets.
Here are snaps of just a few volunteers. There are so many more who have dedicated so much time to making sure the dogs and cats on the front range are well fed, healthy, happy, and able to stay with the families that love them.
Thank you to all of our volunteers and happy National Volunteer Week! You’re truly the best.
