Pet Food Pantry

Free monthly food for the needy 

Berkeley Humane's Pet Food Pantry program provides free monthly pet food to low-income pet
guardians in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. One of the most common reasons for pet relinquishment is
financial difficulty, and the Pet Food Pantry aims to help struggling guardians keep beloved pets in their
homes. Since its inception in 2010, Pet Food Pantry has distributed over 7,000 pounds of pet food.
