Waldo County Pet Food/Supplies Pantry

A non-profit organization accepting donations of food, supplies and money to help Waldo County residents feed their pets. Sponsored by the VFW Post 3108.

Generally the pantry serves anyone in Waldo County (all are approved).  Moreover, they will serve any Veteran!
 
The pantry runs every third Sat. from 12:30 to 2 pm. They have supplies on hand at all times for Veterans in immediate need. They do ask what type of food you generally feed and also educate people about food so they can get the best food for their pets needs. They get regular donations from several places so they can usually give out a decent quality food…..like Royal Canin, Taste of the Wild, Nutro, etc….
