2019 Sponsorhip Opportunites
We would be honored if you would consider supporting Friends of Strays through a corporate/business sponsorship of one or more events this year. Each sponsorship level provides the opportunity for businesses to increase brand recognition in Pinellas County to a wide variety of audiences. This is also a great way to use your team building budget as three of our events are group/team friendly. We will work with you to ensure that your company finds value in the sponsorship you select.

Pet Food Pantry
Helping People and Pets Through Ruff Times
Beginning February 25, 2019, dog and cat food will be available for low-income households to pick up at The Saint Petersburg Free Clinic during open hours.
Friends of Strays has chosen to partner with the Free Clinic to oversee food distribution so community members can learn about and benefit from their extensive program list while collecting their pet food. It also allows our staff to allocate more time doing what we do best -- caring for and adopting out homeless pets.
The Saint Petersburg Free Clinic is located at 836 3rd Avenue North and their hours are as follows:
Mon, Tues, Wed: 8:30am - 3:00pm
Friday: 8:30am - 7:30pm
Saturday: 8:30am - 11:00am
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. Since then, we have distributed than 180,000 pounds of pet food to qualified, low-income families in our community. Thanks to the generous donations from local stores, including Walmart, Sam's Club, 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!
