About

How much do you love your companion pet? Have you ever wondered if you lost your job and and/or had a medical crisis and you had to choose between feeding yourself and feeding your companion pets what you would do? The results may surprise you that more than 50% of Americans would feed their animals before feeding themselves. And/or a worst case, families feel that since their pets are such great animals they make the difficult choice to surrender but come to realize that 1.3 million companion pets that enter the shelters and rescues are euthanized because finding the perfect forever home is just not possible.

This is where I tell people the rubber meets the road in our world. Animal House Project can help by educating and providing the necessary pet food and pet care services to those families that need our services. There is an answer to this widespread epidemic and that is a Pet Food Pantry. The ASPCA and HSUS have done studies dhowing the medical benefits of owning a companion pet: reduction in obesity; less mental health issues; decrease in heart attacks and strokes. Let's join together as a Team to help Keep Companion Pets at Home!!

Our 501(c)3 Organization is growing and we need help behind the scenes to keep the Pantry and our overall organization moving forward. The position(s) includes contacting Pet Food Manufacturers to get on their distribution lists; completion of applications that come in requesting for help; coordination of volunteers that offer their time but need to know where to go and how they can help out to insure the organization is well staffed and a whole host of other responsibilities. Currently, we are servicing Berks County; Montgomery County and all of Chester County Residents.

Would you like to help companion pets stay in their loving homes? Animal House Project, an all-volunteer 501(c) 3 charitable organization, is looking for volunteers to help distribute food at our Pottstown Pet Food Pantry location. We need help across the pantry organization including client registration, food distribution and inventory management.

Food distribution from this location is the 1st Saturday of every month from 11am to 1pm EST.
