Welcome to Food for Pets

When life throws a curve ball, FOOD FOR PETS will assist you in keeping your pets. The stress of financial struggle will sometimes result in making a heartbreaking decision to surrender your pet. Our goal is to help keep you together. Whether the hardship is caused by financial struggle, health, or emergency related circumstances, we are prepared to temporarily lend a hand to ease the burden. At a time when unconditional love from a pet is needed the most, FFP is working to ensure your pet stays in their forever home.

Our Mission:

“Dedicated to reducing hunger in pets, and to the people who love them”

Our Vision and Guiding Principles:

Golden Rule – To treat all living things as we ourselves would wish to be treated. To do our upmost, in striving to prevent a dog or cat being hungry.

Kindness – To demonstrate compassion and respect for all living creatures.

Positive Influence – To judge our effectiveness by the extent to which animal lives are improved, and by the positive experience of the people we touch.

Leadership – To lead by example, developing, promoting, and sharing new ideas and programs to help animals.

Why do We Provide Assistance with Pet Food?

  • The human/pet bond can be life saving for both human and pet. Many of the people we help have rescued their pet off the streets. They will tell you the pet has rescued them.
  • Pets may be their only family or friend. They offer companionship, unconditional love, joy, comfort, friendship, and acceptance. The people we help love their pets unconditionally and will give their pets their last bite of food.
  • Helping people feed their pets decreases shelter/rescue intakes.
  • Low income senior citizens will forgo medical needs and food to take care of their pets.
  • The homeless with pets have many challenges including no shelter. There are no human shelters willing to accept pets. Commitment to their pets outweighs seeking shelter or help for themselves – they make the choice to live in the extreme heat, cold, rain – doing what they can to provide for their pets because they won’t leave them behind.
  • For those who have served our country, we want them to know they are not forgotten and that we are there to help them with their pets.
