Starting Over in Schnecksville, PA

By: Karina Delaine

When dogs or cats are rescued, they are looking for a chance to start over and find a great home. It’s the people at rescues that take in these animals, get them healthy and help them find a loving family. Starting Over, a rescue with a very fitting name based in Schneckville, PA is doing their best to match pets to homes on the east coast. And when they reached out to us last year inquiring about support, we were all in.

 

We work with shelters regularly to help feed the animals they rescue. With Starting Over, it was no different. It all starts with a phone call. We discuss how many dogs and cats they are caring for at the moment and Freshpet decides how much food can be donated based on need and what’s available. And in this case, a volunteer from Starting Over stops by our Kitchens in Bethlehem, PA to pick up their donations.

To date, Starting Over has received over 800 lbs of fresh food. Recently we received these amazing photos from volunteer Shannon Eichner of this family of foster dogs enjoying (and even napping) with their food. It warms our heart to know we are able to help out these individual animals as well as the volunteers that care so much for these animals. Most of them have day jobs and families of their own, but still make time to help animals in need. They pay for the toys, food and care from their own pocket or utilize donations.

The next best thing to donating your time, food or money to these rescues, is helping the dogs and cats get adopted. Share this blog post, Facebook posts or Tweets to help these cuddly friends find homes!
