Pet Food Pantry

Last Saturday of every month

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! 

Find out more about the Monthly Friends of Strays Pet Food Pantry.
