AniMeals No-Kill Adoption Center and Animal Food Bank

Missoula, MT

Ten million animals are abandoned to the streets and shelters in this country every year. The shelters and rescue groups that house and feed these animals are struggling. AniMeals Animal Food Bank supplements the food needs of these homeless animals which frees up precious dollars for other critical needs, like medicine and surgeries. Additionally we feed the pets of the homebound disabled, families in crisis, feral cat colonies, and animals living on the streets. In 2016 we distributed 84,514 pounds of food from our food bank; 63,051 pounds went to 53 shelters and rescues, 8,710 pounds went to 190 families in crisis situations, and 12,753 pounds of food and supplies were given to 63 home bound seniors. We have sent out over 700 tons of food and supplies in the last 10 years. Our territory covers the entire state of Montana consisting of 147,000 square miles. In 2016 AniMeals No Kill Adoption Center found loving homes for 276 cats, spayed/neutered 190 cats and kittens, saved the lives of 16 critically injured homeless animals, and 14 families were helped with medical bills for their pets. All of these vital programs are supported entirely by donations from generous animal lovers that believe in what we do. Our mission is to save the hungry, the helpless, the lost and the little ones just struggling to survive; to house and feed as many animals as possible; and to ease the suffering of the weak and unloved. We rescue. We feed. We heal.
