Mission

Animal House Project (d/b/a Chester County Pet Food Pantry) is a 501(c)3 charitable organization on a mission to help companion pets stay at home and out of animal shelters by providing donated pet food and pet care services to pet families in financial need. We service families facing financial crisis in Berks, Chester, and western Montgomery counties.

At times, we are the last option for families to keep their companion pets at home.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We are looking to open up Mobile Pantries in Reading and Norristown over the course of the next year. But to do this, we need funds to purchase our own Truck and to receive much needed food supplies on a continuous basis. We are looking to establish relationships with Food Distribution and Manufacturing companies. We will also be revamping our website in 2016 to make it more user friendly.

We also need to look for additional grants to fund our spay/neuter program and set up a low cost vaccination clinic.

Application for Various Grants to continue our Spay/Neuter Clinic; Application for Grants to purchase the truck.
Contact pet Food Manufacturing Company; Pet Supply Chains and Distribution Locations for the Mobile Pantry Locations
Continue to recruit Volunteers who can take on more tasks and responsibilities to insure the growth and stability of the overall organization.

A lot of the Volunteers that are part of Animal House Project bring a tremendous amount of experience in knowledge from all walks of life to include fundraising; grant writing; social media; marketing; supply chain management; inventory management and control; administration; negotiations with large corporations and of course dealing with the media.

We have come a long way since the transition between the founding member - Nina Frangieh to now and it is evidenced in the amount of animals that we are now feeding from 750 companion pets to 4000 companion pets to include cats; dogs; rabbits; ferrets; fish; horses; donkeys and birds.
