Do you need our help?

In order to help keep pets in their homes when their families are struggling financially, pet food assistance is available through a monthly distribution. The Pet Food Pantry can provide a household with food for up to four spayed and neutered animals for up to six months. If your pet is not yet altered, we can also provide you with information on low-cost spay and neuter options. To apply for pet food assistance, visit our shelter to submit an application and receive additional information. You can find information about our location and hours here. If you have questions, please email Melanie: or call 208-331-8553.
