We are excited to expand our service to the community through our pet food assistance program! Through our union with Animal Compassion Network, we are now able to offer pet food assistance through thirteen local food pantries making it more accessible to citizens in need. We often hear stories of people who are struggling financially who either go without eating themselves in order to feed their pets or relinquish them to the shelter. Our hope is that by providing free pet food, we can help to ease some of their burden and keep pets in their homes.
If you are interested in this service, you may contact any of the food pantries listed below. You may also come to the Buncombe County Animal Shelter where we can offer an initial one week supply of Pet Food and then direct you to the partnering food pantry in your area.
