Financial Assistance

We work to make pet care and supplies more accessible.

Pet food assistance

We offer pet food assistance through several local food pantries making it more accessible to our community. We often hear stories of people who either go without eating themselves to feed their pets or surrender them to the shelter. We hope that by providing free pet food, we can help ease some of their financial burdens. If you need pet food, contact the food pantries listed below.
