Helping Pets in Need

The past five years at the Bakersfield Pet Food Pantry have been incredible. We now have our own storefront—a permanent location, and for this, we are so very grateful. We at the Pet Pantry are thrilled to be part of an organization that helps Bakersfield's pet owners with emergency pet food. Pets are a blessing.
