Straw For Dogs Pet Food Pantry Project has supplied over 20,000 lbs of dog and cat food to various food pantries in the Mat Su and Anchorage areas. This core S4D program is important to help animals experiencing food instability along with their families, as our volunteers work with human food banks and donors to get the pet food where it is needed.

Since 2014, we have partnered with F.I.S.H in Anchorage and Willow Community Food Pantry in Willow to stock their shelves with pet food. We distribute a regular corporate donation from Science Diet, thanks to our vet partner VCA Alaska Pet Care Animal Hospital, as well as purchase and collect donations of food for these human food pantries and others. Would you like to contribute to this and our other innovative programs? Together, we make a difference! www.strawfordogs.org/donate

One of Straw For Dogs innovative programs is our Shelter Dog Project. S4D offers supplies, support, and resources for adoptable dogs around Alaska with a history of living outdoors. We have created a brochure, How to Bring Any Dog Indoors, and a Pet Food Pantry list that we print and supply to various shelters as well as individuals. We share adoptable dogs with a history of living outdoors on social media and offer follow up support.

Through our partnership with Anchorage Animal Care and Control we have supplied 15 care packages for shelter dogs with a history of living outdoors that include a Freedom Harness, leash, collar, Kong, stuffy toy, and our contact information, including educational brochure. We have professional trainers on our volunteer roster, and offer tips for house training and positive reinforcement. Together, we can make a difference! #volunteer
