Zach's first effort was a one time collection of dog food through his school. The success and outcry for more of these events was so strong that Zach and his family decided to make this their mission.
The plan moved quickly, with local animal businesses offering to collect donations of pet food and other products. The first donation days were surprisingly brisk, as many needy families learned of the giveaways of food for their hungry animals and visited to pick up needed nourishment for their furry friends. When I dropped off my donation at Soapy's Dog Wash on 436, I was delighted to see a large washtub brimming with pet food and other necessities.
Zach's brainchild was named the Central Florida Animal Pantry, and now has its own website where you can learn more about how to help with this admirable project. There you will see just how many other businesses have joined Zach's efforts to help dogs and their families stay together. Hopefully you too can help.
