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.
If you or someone you know needs help to feed your pets, please contact our shelter on 03) 9357 0834 or email our outreach team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
People in need can come along to one of our pet food distribution days (details below) and collect a bag of food to help feed their pets while they get back on their feet. If you can not attend any of these dates you can contact us to arrange a food collection from our shelter on another day.
If you would like to donate towards this program, you can drop off or have some dry cat/dog food delivered to our shelter at 23 Grasslands Ave, Craigieburn, VIC, 3064 or you can donate financially towards this program.
