SCAR Pet Food Pantry

Because no one should have to choose between feeding themselves

and feeding their pets.

Many of the animals that we rescue from pounds are surrendered as their owners are not able to care for them. To stop this in its tracks we have created community solution-based programs to help pet owners and avoid their pets ending up in pounds and shelters in the first place.

Our Pet Food Pantry was created to offer free pet food to any pet owner who is struggling to feed their pets. No one should have to choose between feeding themselves and feeding their pets, however we sadly handle calls from members of our community on a regular basis having to do just that. We receive donated food from pet food companies and members of the public to run this program and then distribute that food to those who need it most.

How the Pet Food Pantry Works:

We receive donated food from pet food companies and members of the public to run this program and then distribute that food to those who need it most via our Community Partners across Victoria so that as many people and their pets can gain access to food as possible.

Therefore, if you, or a client you are assisting, are in need of pet food, please check out the list of organisations below and get in touch with them directly to access pet food for your pet.

If you have any questions, you can contact us at the shelter on (03) 9357 0834 or email our outreach team at info@secondchanceanimalrescue.com.au.
