If you are struggling to feed your pet, we are here to help.
UPDATE: We are currently out of cat food. We do have dog food available and are happy to share it with you if you need help feeding your dog(s).
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, many of our community members now find themselves struggling to feed their pets and we want to help. As the recipient of generous grant funding from Alley Cat Allies and Greater Good, we are able to expand our Pet Food Assistance program to offer all community members in need free pet food! There is no need to apply, this program is available to anyone in need. All you have to do is show up to receive pet food -no questions asked.
In an effort to keep everyone safe, we are asking people to stay in their vehicles and to simply let our team know upon arrival how many pets they have at home and pop their trunks. Our dedicated team of staff and volunteers will provide you with food for each of your pets and send you on your way!
What: Drive-Thru Pet Food Assistance
When: Sundays & Wednesdays from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
Where: Our Reno & Carson City Shelters
Who is eligible? Anyone in need of dog food. Simply show up during the hours listed above.
If you know someone who is struggling to feed their pet and unable to get to one of our shelters, you are welcome to pick up pet food on their behalf and deliver it to them -in fact we hope you do.
While our first priority is always caring for the animals in our shelters, we are committed to supporting Northern Nevada pets and community members in need during this challenging time. Our Drive-Thru Pet Food Assistance program will help ensure that families in need are able to continue to feed their pets.
