About Pet Food Task Force, a division of PAWSitive Pantry
PO Box 603, Waitsfield, Waitsfield, VT 05673, US
Pet Food Task Force is a program of PAWSitive Pantry. PFTF is a collaboration of animal shelters and humane societies within MA working together with retailers, donors, volunteers, to provide pet food to food pantries and social service programs. Our mission is to provide pet food security to those in need, honor the important role pets play in people's lives and work toward keeping people and their pets together despite financial difficulty.
Pet Food Task Force is composed of over 15 animal shelters and animal welfare organizations. We have helped over 130 food pantries and other programs to distribute pet food to those in need. We started when COVID restrictions kicked into effect, but it is clear that despite what's going on with the pandemic, pet food security is a pressing issue in our society.

- It would be ideal if volunteers could commit to at least a few months of volunteering rather than a one-time shift. There is no required time commitment per week/month (flexible).
