Sarah's Pet Pantry

News:  A big Thank you to John Riemenschneider and the Holland Patent Boys Tennis Team for donating their used Tennis Balls to give to the dogs of our Pet Pantry clients.



2015 - We are now in our 5th year of operation.  We are totally self-supported through dedicated fundraising to support this cause.  Sarah’s Pet Pantry is continually looking for volunteers to be on our committee, make items for the Barnfest yearly fundraiser, and also assist in distributing pet food when the food pantry is open.

Sarah's Pet Pantry stocks dry and canned dog and cat food, along with a variety of snacks.  This pet food is available to anyone who qualifies to receive food from the Foothills Rural Community Ministry Food Pantry.  Sarah's Pet Pantry is located at the Twin Churches in Holland Patent.  If you are a pet owner, and your family uses the Food Pantry, do take this opportunity to stretch your pet food dollars by checking out what Sarah's Pet Pantry has to offer.

We have established a new spay and neutering program in conjunction with the Beaver Meadow Vet Clinic.  The pet owners (food pantry clients) participate in a monthly lottery to be chosen to have their pet spayed or neutered.  The cost of spaying or neutering is paid by Sarah’s Pet Pantry, a small amount by the client, and by a discount from Beaver Meadow.  We are now spaying/neutering 3 pets per month.

If you are interested in helping, please consider a donation of dog food, cat food, or special treats.  These may be dropped off at 8297 Old Poland Road, Barneveld, NY 13304 or at Foothills during regular pantry hours. 

Monetary donations are welcome and tax deductible, and will be used to purchase dog and cat food and related supplies. We believe that supplying pet food to pantry customers will help families keep their pets at home and prevent their being sent to animal shelters.  Checks may be made out to F.R.C.M.  with Sarah's Pet Pantry noted on the memo line, and may be mailed to F.R.C.M., P.O. Box 156, Holland Patent, NY 13354.  Only donations specifically designated will be used to buy pet food.  All other donations are used to buy groceries for the food pantry and operate other Foothills programs.
