Willowick Pet Food Pantry
The Pantry started distributing dog and cat food to people in need in January 2016. To date the Pantry has distributed over 100,000 pounds of pet food. The monthly distribution is on the 4th Saturday in the morning (time may vary) and lasts two hours. On occasion, it also distributes cat litter. The distribution location is at Willow Praise Church, 32905 Vine St. in Willowick. It is open to anyone in need regardless of where the pet parents live. During this difficult time, because of Covid 19, the pantry has distributed (one-time distributions) in Madison, Painesville, and Ashtabula. In addition to pet food, the Pantry has various programs: a medical program, a Free Spay/Neuter program, a Microchipping program, and a "crossing the Rainbow Bridge" program.
