THE ANIMAL FOOD BANK
Whiskers, Wags, & Whinny's
is another part of Paws 4 Life. They also
have been joined by the Apache Junction Mounted Rangers, and
Superstition Horsemen's Association, to start up a food bank for
dogs/cats/equines. It has become very apparent that due to the economy
as it is, and the job lay off's, and foreclosures, that many pets are being
turned loose, or just left behind. Whiskers,Wags,& Whinny's was formed
in hopes to keep the pets with their owners, and not at the fate of being
left, or hungry, or homeless. Paws 4 Life is all about pet owners and their
pets, and being able to keep them together. Sometimes during hard
times, food for their pets becomes an issue due to budget constraints. To
date Whiskers , Wags, & Whinny's has helped several pet owners be able
to keep their pets. We hope to see this same success for years to come.
a local store in Apache Junction, has a wonderful selection of
pet supplies and they are working with us. They have partnered with us to
help with the distribution of the pet food. Paws 4 life is very happy to have
Tyler, Andy and Craig and Shoppers staff helping us with a good cause,
and they are very community involved
They will assist in the distribution
of the food for the animals. This is done on a voucher system, once the
applicants have applied, and qualified. We can only hope that this will
assist pet owners in keeping their pets, and being able to provide for them
in their time of need.
Donations may be made to:
