People Care Pet Pantry has the honor of being friends with Dana Parish. An accomplished vocalist and song writer. It is with an overwhelming thank you to her, Andrew Hollander and Andy Love that we are allowed to use Broken Ones as background music for our People Care Pet Pantry - Broken Ones - 2014 video. Thank you all. Please feel free to share with everyone world wide.

What We Are

People Care Pet Pantry is a 501 (c) (3) Public Charity founded in 2009 by Rene and Tom Lamp. We have helped feed pets belonging to over 2,430 families in Northeast Ohio.  We average helping 200 families each month by distributing donated pet food and supplies to previously screened families experiencing temporary financial hardship.

We feed all pets from as small as a fish to as big as a horse. The only thing we do not feed is live animals to other animals (ie: mice to snakes), but if you have a pet mouse, we will help feed it, as long as the donated food it there.

People Care Pet Pantry has formed community partnerships with the Portage Animal Protective League (APL), the Portage Dog Pound,  Pets of the Homeless, Springtime of Hope, as well as various rescue groups and businesses. We are also an available resource through Family and Community Services 211, Kevin Coleman and the United Way among others.

 What We Do

Our Mission is to provide aid necessary for families to keep cherished pets during times of financial crisis.

Our Goal is to reduce owner surrenders to overtaxed shelters, reduce medically unnecessary euthanasia, and help families honor their responsibility to provide life long, loving homes for their pets.

 Who We Help

People Care Pet Pantry fed over 8,000 pets from the Northeast Ohio Region just last year. We screen applicants to verify financial hardship and provide the supplies necessary to help people keep their pets. We do not screen by location; we will help any screened applicant willing to drive to our pickup location.

Many families who apply for help have been laid off, are transitioning from the military or have had a medical setback. We work with shelters and animal rescues to reach people before they surrender their pets and provide aid necessary for them to keep their families intact while they work to resolve their problems.

By helping these people with their pets, we are able to help shelters reduce the influx of animal surrenders and unnecessary euthanasia, reducing their costs and securing better outcomes for people and pets.


People Care Pet Pantry is continuing to step out of the Pet comfort zone.  We feel there is a continual need to not only help the low income, but the homeless as well.  In doing this, we try to supply them with pet food so their only companion does not starve or freeze. 

Partnering with Springtime of Hope in Akron, we help feed the pets of the homeless

PCPP would like the reach out to the homeless in the Portage County.  In doing this, we need to reach out to organizations the deal specifically with these people so we can also help them feed their pets.  Please call us if you know of any groups that help the homeless.

We are always looking for new ideas or beneficial way that the public has the ability to do. 

Finding this idea on Facebook is a great way to help those through tough times. I absolutely love this idea! Blessing Bags to keep in the car when you pass homeless people. Something special you can do with the kids to teach them about caring for others.


Gallon size Ziplock bags
chap stick
packages of tissues
toothbrush and toothpaste
hotel size shampoos
trail mix
granola bars
pack of gum
band aids
coins or predetermined dollar amount, say 5.00 (could be used to make a phone call, or purchase a food item)
hand wipes
you could also put in a warm pair of socks
a packet rain poncho
tampons (for women)
The ideas could be endless!
Assemble all the items in the bags, and maybe throw in a note of encouragement. Seal the bags and stow in your car for a moment of providence.
