If you’re struggling to make ends meet or care for your pets, we would love to help. We offer a
pet food bank, services for low-income pet owners, and home visits to care for the pets of people who have physical difficulty doing so themselves. You can read more about these programs below. Pet Food Bank
Seattle Humane’s Pet Food Bank collects and distributes pet food donations for pets belonging to low-income seniors, families in crisis, and other community members in need. The program feeds more than 1,900 pets every month with eight tons of donated pet food delivered by volunteers to low-income senior housing complexes, senior centers, and food banks.
The Pet Food Bank keeps people and pets together and ensures that seniors who love their animal companions don’t have to choose between feeding their pets and feeding themselves.
