Given the current economic climate, an increased number of petfood pantries are opening across the US, according to a story from  zootoo .

Among those locations is the  Buffalo Companion Animal Network  petfood pantry in Buffalo, N.Y., which also has a special food donation program for seniors.

The story also notes some general food pantries are stocking more petfood, and the  Humane Society of the United States  now is compiling a database of petfood pantries.
