Among other services, our Community Outreach/Education program features our Pet Pantry, a service we have in place for struggling families and their pets. The program is offered to pet owners in need who are unable to afford pet food for their pet(s). Our wish is that by offering aid in the form of free pet food to pet owners, they will not be forced to surrender their animals or put their health at risk due to lack or poor nourishment. This assistance is temporary until the owners are in a better position to provide for their pets.

To help contribute to our Pet Pantry, all donations of pet food to our organization go to our Pet Pantry. You may have thought that the food you donate goes to our adoptable pets, but it does not. Our adoptable pets are fed Hills Science Diet pet food, and they stay on the same food throughout their stay with us in order to minimize stomach upset or other digestive ailments.
