Keeping pets and people together.
We help our two-legged friends keep their four-legged friends when they can no longer afford to.
We step in when families are forced to surrender their beloved pets to shelters during financially tough times.
Last year we assisted almost 2,000 pets and distributed 153,000 pounds of food.
If you find yourself experiencing financial difficulty and are unable to provide for your pet, we will be more than happy to help!
Together we can help people make it through tough times with their companion animals by their side.
Our success depends on people like you who have compassion for animals and who want to help needy families keep their loving pets at home.
Nationwide, 5 million companion animals are surrendered to animal shelters, for whatever reason, annually.
Sixty-three percent of all U.S. homes own at least one companion animal.
Only 25 percent of dogs and cats are adopted from shelters.
The average annual cost of owning a dog is $1,400; a cat is $1,000.

- I help the pantry because I can’t handle the fact that so many animals are given up and euthanized each year. My fur babies are an essential part of our family and would do everything possible to protect and feed them. While I live a comfortable life, I know it can all be taken away in an instant. I want to help others who may be going through a rough patch in their lives knowing they won’t have to give up their babies. Brad
- I was so upset when I lost my job. I couldn’t bare the thought of giving up my dog due to my financial situation. I am so thankful for Bi-State Pet Food Pantry and their wonderful volunteers. They prevented a less than ideal situation from becoming worse. Now I’m back on my feet and still have my best friend by my side thanks to Bi-State! Jack
