Paw Provisions is a heartwarming program dedicated to supporting local pet owners who are facing financial difficulties. This program is built on the belief that every pet deserves to live a healthy and happy life, regardless of their owners' financial circumstances.
The program operates on a simple yet powerful mission: to ensure no pet goes hungry. Through generous donations from compassionate individuals, local businesses, and pet supply stores, we gather a steady supply of nutritious pet food and other essential supplies.
Distribution events and partnering with local food banks allow us to reach pet owners directly, providing them with the necessary provisions to keep their furry friends healthy and content. But our support doesn't stop there. As part of Wilmington Animal Centrix, we offer educational material and additional resources like spay and neuter vouchers, empowering pet owners with knowledge on responsible pet care and nutrition.
Paw Provisions is about more than just feeding animals. It's about fostering a compassionate and supportive community that understands the importance of the human-animal bond. By supporting struggling pet owners, we not only improve the lives of their pets but also uplift the well-being of the families who love them.
We welcome the involvement of enthusiastic volunteers, who serve as the backbone of our program, dedicating their time and energy to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those in need. Together, we create a ripple effect of kindness, empathy, and care that spreads throughout our community, benefiting both animals and people alike.
The Paw Provisions Program continues to evolve and expand its reach, driven by a shared commitment to making the world a better place, one paw at a time. Join us in this noble endeavor as we strive to build a brighter future for animals and their owners, and together, we will make our community a more compassionate and inclusive place for all.
To participate in Paw Provisions, the owner or caregiver of the animal/s in need must agree to the following:
All animals will be spayed or neutered (with WAC help if needed)
Pet owners and caregivers must demonstrate a critical need for the resources provided by WAC
