Pet Food Assistance Programs
(Pet Food Banks)

If your food budget has outpaced your income, and you're having trouble finding the money for pet food, call your local humane society. They may be able to help. They might also be able to help with veterinary expenses--it can't hurt to ask. (For low-cost or free spay/neutering services, call way in advance--sometimes the waiting list can be several months long.)

Here is a growing list of programs to assist non-profits and low-income families with pet-related expenses. If you know of any others, please share.

(Many assistance programs use the federal poverty guidelines to determine eligibility. Here is their reference chart for 2018.)

If you can help out with donations of coupons for pet supplies, please send us an email or post to our Facebook page.
