The Greater Birmingham Humane Society volunteer run Pet Pantry began in 2009 as a proactive measure to keep pets with their families during a temporary economic crisis. So far this year, the Pet Pantry has feed over 474 animals and has helped provide spay/neuter services to 48 pets.

One of the recipients of the Pet Pantry was a battered woman from Georgia who was fleeing an abusive relationship and had nothing but a few possessions, her car, and her two shitzus. With help from her family and food from the Pet Pantry, she was able to start a new life in a suburb of Birmingham and is care for her two dogs, who mean everything to her. Another recipient is a victim of the deadly January 23rd tornado in Centerpoint, Alabama. The Pet Pantry has helped feed her pets so she can rebuild her house and life.
