Pet Food Pantry

Helping People and Pets Through Ruff Times

Beginning February 12th, 2018, Dog and Cat food will be available to pick up at Friends of Strays during regular Adoption Center hours. 

1. Come to the shelter during the open hours listed

2. Follow the Paw Prints to the Adoption Center door

3. Sign in on the food pantry clipboard

4. Take up to two 8lb. bags of dog food and up to two 8lb. bags of cat food per family

5. Participants can return as often as needed for food (based on availability)

In 2015, FOS started a community pet food panty as a way of keeping Pinellas pets with their families and out of local shelters and rescues. In our first year, we offered more than 100,000 pounds of pet food to qualified, low-income families in our community. Thanks to the generous donations from local stores, including Walmart and Target, we are able to supplement dog and cat food to families in need. We are always in need of cat food, dry and wet, every month.

Donations make this progam possible!
