Welcome to Arthur's Pet Pantry

 

About Us

The Beginning

Arthur's Pet Pantry is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charity helping supplement feeding pets in need. The pantry was founded in 2011 by Cindy McEvoy and in 2014, when McEvoy stepped down, it was taken over by Abigail Erdley. It is currently being run by her mother Sue Straub, family and friends. Our mission is to provide supplemental pet food to people for their pets who might otherwise not to be able to afford it. And to help pets stay at home with their families instead of entering the shelter system.

Who was Arthur?

At one time an abandoned but personable cat showed up in Mifflinburg. Initially named Crippled, he became a neighborhood cat. He lived with a family for a while, but they moved, and he kept coming back to Mifflinburg where he stayed with an old guy who lived near the cemetery. When he died, Arthur came to his sale and to Christkindle. He went everywhere around town. He became such a town character that he was dubbed Sir Arthur and became known as the Cat Mayor of Mifflinburg.

Arthur passed away in 2011.

Cindy McEvoy asked her friends what could they do to help pets before they wind up in the shelter system? The answer was to help families having financial difficulties to feed their pets. So, in 2011 the pet food bank was born.

The mission continues to provide supplemental pet food to people for their pets who might otherwise not be able to afford it. And to help pets stay with their families and out of the shelter system.
