About Us

Many times, people have to give up their pets if they are facing economic hardship, and a pet pantry is a way for people to keep their pets. Food is distributed through our partners to qualifying families. The Pet Pantry was the brainchild of Ray and Melonie Grissom, and they created it to honor their beloved dog, Lizzie.
