Filling a Vital Community Need
PACC911’s Chuck Waggin Pet Food Pantry assists low income families and the elderly with food for their pets, thus assuring that pets can stay in the home, rather than be relinquished.
Through its food donation program and referral network, Chuck Waggin Pet Food Pantry assists families in crisis by providing pet food to those who may not be able to afford it. This innovative program helps keep beloved family pets home where they belong, as opposed to being turned into a shelter or rescue

Keeping families in need together with their loved pets
Meet the people behind Chuck Waggin
A subsidiary of PACC911, Chuck Waggin was founded in 2012 by Donna Barker to address the needs of too many people abandoning their pets because they could no longer afford to keep them. A vital arm of PACC911, Chuck Waggin provides much needed pet food and pet service referrals to keep animals and the families who love them together.
Donna Barker Founder
“I love all dogs and cats. I formed Chuck Waggin’ Pet Food Pantry, a division of PACC911, because I wanted to make a difference in the lives of hungry pets and the families who own them.
I was in the mortgage industry for more than 30 years as a Manager, Regional Manager and Managing Vice President. Pets are a big part of the American family today and some of these families are being torn apart because of financial difficulties. If I can help at least one family stay together with their pet by helping feed that animal through Chuck Waggin Pet Food Pantry, then I have started the process of achieving my goal.”
Pet Food Pantry Administrator
Valerie “Val” Schulte administers the daily needs of PACC911’s pet food operation, after the passing of legacy founder Donna Barker. Chuck Waggin provides free pet food, low cost spay and neuter services, as well as medical help to the underprivileged population of Maricopa County, making it possible for families to keep their beloved pets in their home.Originally from Iowa, Val grew up on a farm where her love for all animals began. After retiring from the US Postal Service , she volunteered for Lost Our Home Pet Foundation and other pet rescues before finding Chuck Waggin Pet Food Pantry. She brings her expertise of organization and streamlining operations, along with her desire for fundraising, to better assist with the medical needs of the animals Chuck Waggin serves. She shares her home with two beautiful fur kids Tiggi, Pawz and Queso.
“When I think about what is important in my life, not only do family and special people come to mind, but also pets. I have an affinity for the senior population, and realize the value and significance pets play in the lives of the elderly.
‘I promote our Chuck Waggin Pet Food Pantry wherever I go. We have three rescue dogs in our household and I treasure each one. I can’t imagine my life without pets and love being involved in the animal community. Pets, like people, are products of their upbringing and environment, but even in bad situations, pets can still manage to love unconditionally. The life lessons we can all learn from these special, innocent animals is astounding!”
Marty Buck has been volunteering with animals since 1990 when, as she puts it, “she fell into the animal abyss.” One of the requirements to receive food for pets from Chuck Waggin Pet Food Pantry is the client must get their pet(s) spayed/neutered. Currently Marty is the Spay/Neuter Coordinator for Chuck Waggin after having retired from State government. She was one of the original founders of Altered Tails.
