The good news for the Louisiana Pet Pantry is that it now has access for more food to distribute to animal rescue groups. The bad news is that even free food costs money.
Formerly the Rescue Bank of Baton Rouge, LPP is holding a raffle to raise money for shipping costs for dog food that will go to 30 area rescue organizations, a number that may soon grow to 32, said Mark Mese, president of LPP’s board. Funds are even more necessary since the Pet Pantry’s parent organization merged with a larger charity.
