NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) -The North Platte Pet Pantry provides food to balanced families in need of resources for their furry loved ones.

“You know pets just add so much to everyone life and nobody should have to not be able to provide for their pets as if we have this available,” said North Platte pet pantry coordinator Susan Kubart.

Each Monday at 6 p.m. at 3502 South Willow, Storage unit #104, members of the community can drive up and receive personalized assistance for their pets.

The volunteers engage with the owners to provide balanced diets for the animals.

“We help everyone especially with COV ID-19,” said Kubart.

About seven years ago, a group of people were interested in providing resources for animal welfare in the area. The North Platte Pet Pantry was created through collaborative efforts from the Positive Partners and Fur the Love of Paws.

“I also don’t want people to skimp on their basic needs or their needs in life because they are feeding their animals when we have food out here we can help people with,” said Kubart.

The Pet Pantry needs volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering, it is recommended that you come during the pantry’s operating hours.

Currently, the Pet Pantry needs donations of dry cat food, cat litter, treats, canned food and, toys and beds. Any additional pet supplies you may have and cannot use can be donated to the pantry.
