Pueblo opens a new pet food bank


PUEBLO, Colo. — A new pet food bank is officially open. Anyone can come to Colorado Pet Pantry and get food for their furry friends.

Colorado Pet Pantry will be open the last Thursday of every month. There are no income requirements. The organization also offers spay and neuter coupons.

The pantry is located on West Pueblo Boulevard inside Lynn Gardens Baptist Church.

“We get all kinds of donations in other fashions,” said Southern County Regional Manager Betty Riggin. “Today we had all kinds of treats, toys, medicine so if we get that we bring that to the food pantry and have clients pick it up.”

4500 pounds of dog and cat food were given out on the first day alone.
