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 helping out with inventory and getting the pantry ready for our Pottstown Pantry; distribution of the food to the clients that come; administrative paperwork.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.

Did You Know?
Of the many millions of dogs and cats surrendered to shelters or abandoned each year in the United States, approximately one million surrenders/abandonments were due to the owners financial inability to provide for the basic needs of their pets; pet food and veterinary care.
Have you ever wondered what would happen if you had to surrender your family pet(s) to a shelter simply because you could not afford to feed or provide basic veterinary care for them?
*Approximately 50% of pets surrendered to shelters never find a new home, and sadly, are euthanized.*
Our demographics - Who do we help?
Returning military veterans and their families; retired military veterans and seniors who are living on a fixed income; domestic violence families; medically stressed families - Cancer; Parkinson; ALS; MS and families that are still struggling from the 2009 Recession. We cut across all sectors of the populations and the need seems to be increasing not decreasing in people needing our help.
We'll work with your schedule.
