Being a pet owner also comes with financial responsibilities. You also have to make sure that your fur baby is eating right and is getting the nutrients they need. But, of course, there will also be challenging times when some of us would need some help.
Queen City Bulldog Rescue, a non-profit organization in Bellevue, Kentucky, recently started a project called Operation Dog Food Pantry. Their goal is to help pet owners of any breed provide enough food for their dogs, especially those struggling financially.
Chelsea Muenzer, the founder and president of the group, hopes that they could let people know that there will always be someone who could help them in times of need. They are there to assist them and their pooches without asking for anything in return.
This dog food pantry is the only one in Northern Kentucky. They are open every first and third Sunday of the month from 11 am to 2 pm. Owners could come with or without their pets and get as much dog food as they need until their supplies last.
Queen City Dog Rescue also posts on their Facebook page whenever they have new outreach programs and how other kind-hearted people could donate food for the pantry. The project has been very successful so far and has been gaining more volunteers.
Chelsea saw how their project had a positive impact on both humans and dogs. As long as they are continuously receiving dog food donations, they are able to provide for more pet owners. At the same time, owners who come to the pantry also learn about the group’s advocacies and end up joining the team.
The Queen City Dog Bulldog Rescue started in 2017 by helping one Bulldog get adopted until they continued doing it for more pups and realized that they needed a group and an office so they can do more. At present, the organization has helped more than 300 Bulldogs find their forever homes.
