For many people, the pandemic has brought new challenges to their lives. Some have chosen to view their personal difficulties during this time as an opportunity to give back. Georgia native Scout Bagley, founder of the charity Kibble2Care, is one of them.

According to Chevy New Roads Magazine, starting a pet food pantry was something that Bagley had been wanting to do for the past few years. The inspiration for the idea came from her experiences working at a few vet clinics and a nearby animal shelter. “We were getting in a lot of surrenders because owners who had fallen on hard times couldn’t afford to keep their pets,” said Bagley.

Then when the pandemic hit earlier this spring, Bagley decided to turn her vision into a reality to help local families and pets in need. “When COVID came around and I got laid off from my job at the coffee shop, I thought there’s no better time to do this than now.”

With the help of social media and gathering the support of some former patrons at the coffee shop she used to work at, Bagley launched Kibble2Care. She leverages social media to seek out donations for pet food and to connect with pet-owner applicants.

With the help of a Chevy Silverado, her husband, and their two lab-mix dogs, Bagley picks up the dog food at donors’ houses then transports the food to her house for storage. Though she’s currently working part-time at a local cafe, she anticipates running her charity full-time in the near future, when a few grants and the 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt status come into play.
