On October 1st, 2015 Furry Friends Inc., a Colorado Springs pet food delivery service and retail store and Peak Pet Pantry, a nonprofit pet assistance organization partnered to serve the needy in the Colorado Springs area, including making it possible to reach the pet food needs of elderly and disabled pet owners, as well as those home-bound due to illness. The new program is named Leo and Star’s Pet Assistance on Wheels or PAWS program. Leo was one of the first cats we delivered cat food to and Star was one of the first dogs. Each recipient’s story and a picture of at least one of their pets is posted as allowed here and on our facebook page. By bringing awareness to the plea of these families, Furry Friends Inc and Peak Pet Pantry hope to provide supplemental quality pet food assistance during trying times. All donations designated PAWS will go towards the pet food delivery service. Peak Pet Pantry will continue to serve the community for those able to come to their distribution location, located in a storage unit in SecurCare Self Storage, at 4729 Astrozon Blvd, plus offering the Leo and Star’s Pet Assistance on Wheels or PAWS program. This partnership will help fill the pantry’s cupboard while getting quality pet food out into the community.
