Then North Platte Pet Food Pantry opened in 2013, and the food for families needing help with their pets is provided through donations from the community, and by donations from the Wal-Mart D.C. Right now, supplies are low and the folks at the pantry want to make sure they can continue to offer help to the community when it is needed.
In October 2021 the North Platte Pet Food Pantry helped 123 families, from struggling families, low-income folks needing some support, elderly, and people who lost their jobs, with 3,888 pounds of dry dog food and 1714 pounds of dry cat food.
