If you have a pet you know the food can expensive.

Mario's Pet Food Pantry is here to help.

In 2012 Paulette Coty, the creator of Mario's Pet Food Pantry started assisting NIagara county pet owners in the memory of her son, Mario, who loved all pets.

The project was designed to help active and retired military, shut ins and people who have fallen on hard times.

Since, Coty has opened four locations and says more and more people are coming each and every week.

MPFP assists all of Niagara County. No one in need is refused because of where they live.

But times can be tough. MPFP rarely has fully stocked shelves of pet food. Coty says cat and dog food goes out quicker than it comes in to those who need some extra kibble.

If you're interested in donating you can contact Mario's Pet Food Pantry at 716-465-3654 or email Paulette at Pcoty@roadrunner.com.
