Pet Food Pantry of Oklahoma City helps low-income seniors feed petsBY SUSAN WRIGHT Published: March 20, 2012
For older people, a pet may be a constant companion. Relatives might not live nearby, so a beloved dog or cat is the only friend. So imagine having to choose between feeding yourself and your dog or cat.
It's a decision some low-income senior citizens must make every day, said Kim Pempin, president of the Pet Food Pantry of Oklahoma City.
The Oklahoma City woman started the nonprofit two years ago after hearing about Mobile Meals participants who went hungry because they gave the food from their plates to their pets.
