Pet Assistance

North Township is continuing to work with Buddies Pet Pantry to provide pet food, pet supplies and toys for those who cannot afford it.

About 1,200 pounds of pet food is distributed to township residents each month.

“Our mission is to keep families and their pets together,” said Cheryl Plomann, founder of Best Buddies Pet Pantry. “North Township is one of our biggest clients and we are happy to help.”

The food is available to North Township residents who meet income criteria.
