Best Buddies Pet Pantry
Keeping families and pets together!   



                                 Best Buddies Pet Pantry is an all-volunteer 501c3 non-profit that provides free pet food to 
                                 qualified families in need in Northwest Indiana and Illinois.  In Indiana it serves residents of Porter,
                                 Lake and LaPorte Counties.  In December 2013, the pantry expanded to provide assistance to family
                                 pets in need at Bloom Township Center in Chicago Heights Illinois.  As of June 2014, the pantry has
                                 been providing pet food assistance to pets in need in Will County at New Lenox Food Pantry and 
                                 Frankfort Township Food Pantry. 

                                 Our Mission:  during these difficult economic times, American families across the nation are 
                                 struggling to make ends meet and must rely on food banks to supplement their food sources.
                                 Unfortunately, pets also suffer and do not get proper care and nutrition.  Sadly some are disposed
                                 of along side the road and starve to death.  Many family pets are given up to animal shelters.  
                                 This causes overcrowding and increases the number of pets euthanized.  The pantry's mission is
                                 to help reduce the number of pets surrendered to shelters due to lack of food and help keep
                                 families and their pets together.  

                                 Best Buddies Pet Pantry is in its 5th year of service in the community.  It operates as a mobile 
                                 pantry, delivering pet food to 14 distribution sites in the bi-state area and providing emergency 
                                 pet food assistance.  The pantry provides free pet supplies, cat litter and flea/tick treatment when
                                 available.  It also provides information for low-cost spay & neuter services and low-cost vaccination clinics.
