Please park in front of the building and walk around to the back. Because of people and animals walking in the back area, please do not drive your car around to the back. We will have volunteers to help carry food to your vehicle.

Distribution Dates

Food will only be given out on the last Saturday of each month from 11am – 2pm with the exception of holidays.  Dates are subject to change.

Donations Make This Possible

As a volunteer-run program, all of our pet food is donated to us by members of the community including individuals, local Walmart and Target locations and grants that we are awarded to purchase food. We are only able to continue this program through donations. If you can contribute, please drop off any of the following food during shelter hours.

We also accept donations of cash or check, made payable to Friends of Strays Animal Shelter, and mailed to:
