Mission Statement:

Too many people are abandoning their pets because they can no longer afford to keep them. Our mission is to provide pet food and pet service referrals to keep pets and the families who love them together.

Vision Statement:

Chuck Waggin’ Pet Food Pantry envisions a world where:

  • The existence of hungry pets is abolished
  • Providers of pet care, health care and social services work hand in hand to promote human wellness
  • The human to animal bond is strengthened daily with respect and dignity

Helping Pets = Helping People

Pet ownership is cherished for the physical, emotional and social benefits it provides.

Values Statement:

All living creatures will be treated with equal care, compassion and respect.

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” by Mahatma Gandhi
