Find a Pet Food Donation Site

Our pet food donation site volunteers support our objective of collecting pet food and pet supplies. They are working with pet food providers who have agreed to distribute pet food in those communities.

Make a Donation

Your donation can make the lives of these pets a little easier. Each day is a struggle for those experiencing homelessness, and their pets have little recourse. We are their voice, and you can be their hero.

Evidence shows that animal companionship is fortifying and contributes to the emotional well-being of people experiencing homelessness, including encouraging owners to obtain sobriety, leave abusive relationships, and avoid incarceration.

BECOME A VOLUNTEER

Feeding Pets of the Homeless® is a national non-profit that works with businesses and volunteers across the country to collect pet food and supplies for our homeless population that owns pets. Our volunteers help enlist pet food Donation Sites in their local communities and are advocates for keeping pets and humans together.

We need your compassion and help to continue our work as the homeless situation grows in our country. Becoming a volunteer is easy!

Meet Shadow!Hello, my name is Shadow and I’m a 4-year-old Labrador mix. My humans and I have been experiencing homelessness, living out of our car in the Martinez, CA area for just about 2 years.One day, my human noticed one of my ears was enlarged. Then it ruptured, and my human knew I needed to see a vet. My dad reached out to the VA and was given the number to an organization called Feeding Pets of the Homeless. So my human called, completed an intake interview, and once we provided homeless verification, my human was given the number to our local vet so we could make an appointment.Thankfully, a walk-in exam was approved, and once at the vet’s office, it was determined that I had an ear hematoma. I was sedated, put on some fluids, and my ear was repaired and cleaned. I was even sent with an Ecollar – oh, the fun we had!Thank you to Feeding Pets of the Homeless for contributing $1544 towards my care.A couple of months have gone by, and my humans thought it would be nice to call our case manager at Feeding Pets of the Homeless and give her an update. We were no longer homeless, living out of our car. My family got into housing because my human was approved through the HUD-VASH Program, a program for veterans like my dad! My dad says we might not have a table to eat at, but when he looks at me being the happiest of pups, he could live without it. We are so grateful for the support that made this possible.Shadow’s story is a testament to the power of compassion and its impact on those in need. They may be just one dog, but to their owner, they are their world. Your support is not just a donation – it's a lifeline. Together, we can ensure that pets like Shadow receive the care they deserve, no matter their obstacles. Click the donation button to help make a world of difference one pet at a time! ...
