Sponsor a Pallet, Help a Rescue!

Rescue Bank® has received a substantial donation of high-quality pet food, but we still have to meet the freight cost. You can sponsor a pallet for $60 and provide more than $900 in food to a deserving non-profit animal rescue group

Our traditional sources of pet food donations are local- individuals, pet food stores, grocers and the food bank. Freight cost for food from these sources is minimal- we’re able to keep our pet food pantry well-stocked.

Recently, we were offered truckload quantities of high-quality dog and cat food from a major manufacturer, provided we pay for the freight from their plant about 1,200 miles away. We’ve arranged donated warehouse space in Houston, Baton Rouge and New Orleans and our volunteers are completing preparations to distribute this food to small, independent rescue groups throughout Central Texas, East Texas and South Louisiana.

These smaller, less visible groups have limited access to resources and the few dollars they receive in donations are often spent on basic necessities like food. When they can source those supplies at a pet food pantry, they are able to use those scarce dollars for spay/neuter services and vet bills for rehabilitation and wellness. Your $60 sponsorship will not only feed several animals for weeks, it will also improve their health and prepare them for adoption by a caring family.

We maintain a small reserve for freight, to be ready for opportunities like this. However, this offer- ten truckloads- is much larger than we normally receive and it has completely depleted our reserve. Please help us meet this extra freight cost and build a stronger reserve.

Donations can be made using the PayPal or American Express® Members Give button on the left, or by mailing a check to Rescue Bank® , 6363 Woodway, Suite 975, Houston, TX 77057.

Rescue Bank® is a 501(c)3 non-profit pet food pantry; we sincerely appreciate your tax-deductible donation!



Thank You Georg Williams!

Georg, a celebrated pet portrait artist in Austin, has created our new Rescue Bank logo. With the same whimsical, pet-loving style he applies to commissioned portraits, Georg has captured the feeling we get from helping feed pets in shelters and foster groups in our community. We simply can’t turn them down, which is why our volunteers have worked hard to deliver more than 5 million meals to non-profit animal rescue and rehabilitation groups since 2006

Help us thank Georg by visiting his website, He’s an interesting artist with a tremendous gift for capturing the personality of animals in a portrait. We think he’s wonderful and are certain you will, too!
