Our Pet Food Bank

Launched in 2019, our Pet Food Bank provides food, jackets, collars, leads, bowls, and bedding to owners that can’t afford the things their pet needs. We also have trained and experienced staff on hand in case you might need any advice or other support.

We don’t judge anyone or their circumstances here. We know that, with the rise in the cost of living and other changes, many people are struggling to make ends meet. We don’t think a change in financial circumstances should mean you can’t keep a pet. In fact, in these situations, pets are often a much-needed source of comfort, stability, and security.

We cared for hundreds of dogs and cats last year, many from loving homes and families. We know that social issues such as financial difficulties, illness, homelessness, and domestic abuse can all affect your ability to give your pet the things they need. Our goal here is to empower owners to keep their pets where they belong – at home.

Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee that all items will be available at all times. We might not have specific products, quantities and sizes, but will do our best to provide you with what you and your pet need.

Give What You Can To Help

To reach as many people as possible, we’ve partnered with nearly 90 human food banks, supporting thousands of pets through this service alone each year.

Our Pet Food Bank has never been more needed. We urgently need both wet and dry dog and cat food. We’re always in need of dog and cat treats too, as well as blankets.
