About Ranger's Pantry Pet Food Bank

Ranger's Pantry Pet Food Bank is a project of the Community Resources Department, 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 over 5,000 dogs and cats (and their families!) by providing over 175,000 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.
