Are you experiencing financial hardship and in need of pet food?

We want to ensure that families who love their pets can continue to care for their pets regardless of financial ability.  The Pet Pantry program exists to ensure that a lack of food won’t cause a bonded family to be broken apart, due to surrendering the pet to a shelter, and to decrease stress on the people who love their pets.

Pet Pantry is available to all  family residents of Santa Clara county experiencing financial instability.

Unfortunately, prescription diets are not available at this time.
