Donna Barker – President/FounderDonna Barker

I love all dogs and cats. I formed Chuck Waggin’ Pet Food Pantry, a division of PACC911, because I wanted to make a difference in the lives of hungry pets and the families who own them. I was in the mortgage industry for more than 30 years as a Manager, Regional Manager and Managing Vice President. I now work part time for the City of Phoenix, Parks and Recreation Division. Pets are a big part of the American family today and some of these families are being torn apart because of financial difficulties. If I can help at least 1 family stay together with their pet, by helping feed that animal through Chuck Waggin’ Pet Food Pantry, then I have started the process of achieving my goal.

Marilyn Casper-Secretary

Marilyn CasperWhen I think about what is important in my life, not only do family and special people come to mind, but also pets. I have an affinity for the senior population, and realize the value and significance pets play in the lives of the elderly. I promote our Chuck Waggin’ Pet Food Pantry wherever I go. We have 4 rescue dogs in our household and I treasure each one: Darby, Samantha, Tazz, and Chance. I can’t imagine my life without pets and love being involved in the animal community. Pets, like people, are products of their upbringing and environment, but even in bad situations, pets can still manage to love unconditionally. What lessons we all can learn from these special, innocent animals.

Marty Buck

Marty Buck has been volunteering with animals since 1990 when she, as she puts it, “fell into the animal abyss.”  One of the requirements to receive food for pets from Chuck Waggin’ Pet Food Pantry is the client must get their pet(s) spayed/neutered.  Currently Marty is the Spay/Neuter Coordinator for Chuck Waggin’, after having retired from State government.  She was one of the original founders of Altered Tails and deals with them now on a daily basis, while driving pets to their spay or neuter surgeries.
