Jasmine’s Corner is a partnership between the Jewish Family Services Food Pantry, and VCA Animal Hospitals, to ensure that pets in need are being fed.
There are so many ways to get involved in Jasmine’s Corner Pet Food Pantry!
- Volunteer: JFS always needs volunteers to help sort and stock donations of pet food and supplies, and to help our clients shop in the pantry.
- Donate: While VCA donates food monthly, it’s never enough to cover demand. We accept cash donations, as well as shelf-stable wet and dry pet food, and supplies ranging from litter to new toys to leashes and beyond. All food and supplies must be new and unopened to guarantee the safety of pets.
- Need Help? Do you or someone you know need help feeding their pets? Contact JFS at 913-327-8250 or firstname.lastname@example.org to learn about Jasmine’s Corner Pet Food Pantry.
