About Ranger's Pantry Pet Food Bank

Ranger's Pantry Pet Food Bank is a project of the Community Resources Division, designed to keep struggling families and their pets together during times of financial hardship by providing pet food to in-need families residing in Fayetteville. Founded in May of 2010, Ranger's Pantry has assisted more than 4,600 dogs & cats (and their families!) by providing over 160,000 pounds of pet food! The program is donation-based, and every pound of food that has been distributed has been donated by businesses and local residents.
