On Friday, myself and volunteer Amy Cook headed "down the hill" to pick up Mojave Desert Animal Rescue's eagerly anticipated pet food donation.
Rammstein's Memorial Pet Food Pantry was empty, and we desperately needed pet food for the many homeless and unemployed residents of our region, who need help feeding their pets.
We thought you would like to see a few photos of your generous contributions, hard at work!

|Half loaded, more to go. This load will last 8 to 10 weeks.|
Your donations pay for truck rental, fuel, and most importantly, the freight cost for the food itself. Did you $80 can distribute a 900 - 1000 pound pallet of food? (All food is donated, we pay a per-pallet fee to help cover the cost of the food being transported from the manufacturer to the warehouse, we then travel to the warehouse to pick up food)
Would you like to help the pets of homeless and jobless pet guardians in the Mojave Desert?
This is by far the most economical way to feed so many in-need animals, and those at risk of surrender to animal shelters because of a guardian's inability to afford pet food.
Next task? CAT FOOD!
