Pet Food Pantry

Helping Pets and the People Who Love Them

Our Pet Food Pantry provides pet owners facing financial hardship with pet food, cat litter, and other supplies.

The Pet Food Pantry is available to anyone who is in need of assistance providing food or cat litter for their beloved pet(s). Other pet care supplies may be available as well, so please talk with us about your current needs. 

 Please read this page carefully as our Pet Food Pantry process has changed effective October 14, 2022:

PET FOOD PANTRY HOURS:

  • We are no longer booking appointments for Pet Food Pantry services. Instead, we have open hours for the Pet Food Pantry in which you can stop by, browse our current selection, and take home what is needed for your pet(s) based on what we have available at that time.

  • Hours of Operation for our Pet Food Pantry (located at our shelter):

    • Mondays from 11am-1pm

    • Wednesdays from 11am-1pm

    • Fridays from 3:00-4:00pm

  • Please note that our Pet Food Pantry operates by donation only and is struggling like many other animal service agencies to secure an abundance of food/supplies due to inflation, supply chain issues, shipping delays, and labor shortages. As such, we may not always have the type or kind of food, cat litter, or supplies you need. Still, we will do our best to assist you, and we thank you for your understanding. 

If you have any questions, please call our Community Engagement Coordinator at 401-421-1399 x213 or email reception@parl.org
