One critical step in helping to reduce the number of animals in shelters is providing residents with resources so they can avoid relinquishing their pets to shelters. The pet food bank provides pet food to the pets of low-income residents. Please note that we rely on donations to fill orders, which means our food levels vary.
By providing free pet food to those in need, we are able to:
- Reduce the number of animals that are taken to the shelter
- Reduce the number of animals that are euthanized due to overcrowded shelters
- Preserve the loving relationship that pet owners share with their pets
- Relieve people of the emotional stress of not being able to provide for their pets

How you can help
The pet food pantry not only fills bellies, but it also helps to save lives by providing families with what they need to keep their pets at home and out of shelters. The pet food pantry relies completely on donations. You can help keep the pantry stocked by donating cat and dog food! We also accept open bags of pet food.
