The Houston Humane Society Pet Pantry will support Houston residents in caring for their pets by providing free pet food and supplies to those well-meaning pet owners needing assistance, especially those falling on difficult financial times due to COVID-19.
How does it work?
A Pet Pantry event can take place onsite at the Houston Humane Society or offsite at a community location. However, both onsite and offsite events have the same general structure which is that of a drive-thru. Pet Pantry participants are asked to stay in their cars, form a line and a staff/volunteer will put the pre-bagged dry and/or canned pet food into the trunk of the car.
Pet Pantry’s at Offsite Locationsdo not require you to sign-up for an appointment. They are on a first come first serve basis and food will be distributed until it runs out. You may visit hereto see the upcoming dates
Pet Pantry’s at Onsite Locationsall take place at the Houston Humane Society. Some on-site events require you to make appointments while others do not. Please check hereto see dates, times, and requirements.
Once you have arrived at a Pet Pantry event, you will be required to fillout a form and ask to return it once it is your turn to obtain your pet’s food.
If you have a special food request for your dog or cat, or have a small mammal as a pet, please contact the email@example.com and we will do our best to accommodate your special food request.
