We provide pet food at no cost to pet owners who are struggling financially and cannot afford to keep their pets.

When our pantry started in 2010, economic reasons accounted for approximately 25% of the pets that were surrendered by their owners to local shelters.

In 2018, that number was down to 7.3%! 

In 2019, we distributed 74,918 pounds of food to help pets and their owners in our community!


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

“We’ve learned what true unconditional love is thanks to our pets. The deep relationship between us and each of our pets makes us

a better person."
