These tough economic times have seen a dramatic increase in the number of family pets abandoned or surrendered to animal shelters because their families can't afford to feed them. To address this need, the Kibble Korner has been established to help our area's families who are struggling to keep their animals and their families intact. Kibble Korner supplies our county's residents with food for hungry pets.

Who we are...Kibble Korner has a mission to keep our area's pets fed and in the homes they know and love. As families struggle with the loss of jobs, your help can make all the difference to sparing children, parents, and the family pet the heartache of separation.
