Pet Food Pantry
The Humane Society of Pinellas manages and maintains a Pet Food Pantry, which provides food to pet owners in need. While some owners need pet food on a short-term, emergency basis, we also provide pet food long term to individuals that may be unemployed, disabled or on government assistance.
In order to participate in this program, pet owners register in our Volunteer Village, located next to our Adoption Center. For the first three months, HSP does not require any "proof of need." We understand that pet owners may face financial hardships at any time. After three months, HSP requests participants provide proof of unemployment, disability or government assistance. If pets are unaltered or not up-to-date on vaccinations, HSP arranges these services with the owner. While we strive to provide pet food and certain supplies for one month at a time, the pet food pantry is stocked through the generosity of our donors and we cannot guarantee the availability of food.
Our Pet Food Pantry is open in our Volunteer Village the following hours:
Monday: 11AM - 6PM
Tuesday: 11AM - 6PM
Senior Pet Connection
Senior Pet Connection supports low-income and homebound seniors by making monthly deliveries of pet food and supplies at no cost. Like a "meals on wheels" for pets, this program allows seniors to provide the level of care they know their pets deserve, without having to leave their home. Our dedicated staff and volunteers also assist participants with routine vaccines and preventatives in addition to the pet food.
Due to availability of volunteer delivery drivers and food in the summer months, applications for Senior Pet Connection will reopen in the Fall, 2019.
How to help
Donations of food and supplies, such as cat litter, are always needed to support these programs and keep pets with their families. You can donate supplies at HSP or at one of the following locations:
