Karyn Moltzen founded AniMeals in 2003 to help homeless cats and dogs.
Since 2003, AniMeals has strived to fulfill its mission: No more hungry animals. Through the donations of generous supporters and the efforts of volunteers, the non-profit group has distributed pet food and supplies to animal shelters, rescue groups, feral cat caregivers and homebound and disabled pet owners in Montana.

AniMeals exists through private donations and charitable contributions. The registered non-profit organization delivers food and supplies to a large area of western Montana, stretching from the Canadian border south to the city of Dillon. AniMeals’ delivery area covers about 29,600 square miles. Within this area, 68 percent of the goods delivered go to animal shelters and rescues, with 22 percent distributed to feral cat caregivers and another 10 percent going to low-income, homebound and disabled pet owners.

Karyn Moltzen’s work with the organization she founded in 2003 earned her the recognition and support of many grateful pet owners and caregivers when she was nominated for Animal Planet’s “Hero of the Year” award in 2007. In her nomination letter, Tara Westlie said, “Karyn is my hero. She has managed to accomplish that which I had never though possible, and now a food bank for animals is a reality in Montana.”

In return, Moltzen extends her gratitude to AniMeals’ volunteers and contributors. “In a world that so often seems indifferent to these homeless creatures, we know different,” she said. “We see it in the caregivers. We see it in the donations, and we see it in our volunteers. We see caring and compassion, and we thank you for it.”

What a wonderful organization. I wish there was an organization that I could donate to in this area.
