*The Paw's Pantry, founded in April of 2016, is a (501c3 pending) non-profit pet food pantry based in Taunton, MA that serves all of Bristol County and the surrounding areas. Our primary goal is to provide pet food assistance for anyone who cannot afford to feed their pets (usually people that are homeless, low income, or elderly.) We also provide supplies on an as-needed basis, like cat litter, doggie clean-up bags, leashes, collars, etc. The pantry has stocked the Red Cross disaster response vehicle with kits for pet owners who are displaced due to disasters, such as house fires. Each kit includes a leash, a collar, water, bowls, food, toys, litter boxes, and a blanket; all of the necessities you'd need if you had to take your dog/cat and run from a burning house. Aside from distributing food & supplies, we also serve as a resource center for referring pet owners to low income vet clinics, spay/neuter programs, foster homes for the pets of homeless owners, and discount programs for volunteer who are caring for feral cat colonies.

Light snacks will be provided, but feel free to bring your own peanut-free snacks as well.

Steven Spielberg directed this adaptation of Roald Dahl's beloved novel, which centers on the unlikely friendship between a lonely orphan named Sophie (Ruby Barnhill) and the titular "big friendly giant" (brought to life via a motion-capture performance from Mark Rylance). Together, the pair explore Giant Country and collect dreams; later, they try to warn the Queen of England (Penelope Wilton) about the threat posed by the other giants, who, unlike the vegetarian BFG, eat children for sustenance.

This animated comedy from Illumination Entertainment asks the question: what do our pets do all day when we're not home? For the critters living in a Manhattan apartment building, the answer is: whatever they want! A terrier named Max (voice of Louis C.K.) regularly invites his friends to hang out at his place while his owner (Ellie Kemper) is gone, but his quiet life is upended when said owner also takes in Duke (Eric Stonestreet), a stray mutt whom Max instantly dislikes. Their feud eventually causes both of them to get lost in New York City, and as they work together to find their way home, they cross paths with a vicious bunny (Kevin Hart) who plans to lead a group of abandoned pets on a mission of revenge against humanity.

Years later, a forest ranger (Bryce Dallas Howard) discovers Pete and takes him in, but his attempts to adjust to a normal life are complicated by a man (Karl Urban) who wants to hunt down Elliot.
