The Wish Upon a Bone Pet Food Pantry.
In difficult economic times, when faced with feeding their families or their pets, families sometimes surrender their pets to the county shelter or release them into public spaces. We at Wishbone Pet Rescue Alliance believe families should never have to make such heartbreaking choices.
The Wish Upon a Bone Pet Food Pantry, associated with River Church in Allegan, began in April 2009.
“Families shouldn’t have to choose between feeding their pets or their children. The Pet Food Pantry can help,” says Michelle DeLash, Wishbone’s Pet Food Pantry coordinator.
Wishbone Pet Rescue Alliance established the Wish Upon a Bone Pet Food Pantry to provide cat and dog food to families who may otherwise be unable to care for their pets during times of financial difficulty. This service is provided free of charge to the Allegan County community thanks to donations by generous Wishbone supporters and grant money from the Allegan County Education Vocational Technical Center.
Our goal is to keep animals in their loving homes rather than be surrendered at the county shelter.
To qualify recipients must be an Allegan County resident, screened and approved for services through the River Church or Christian Neighbors, and all pets in the household must be spay/neuter-compliant or the owner must be willing to have their pet spayed/neutered by their vet or at the next-available Low-Cost Spay-Neuter Clinic offered by Wishbone.
