Pet Food Bank

In 2010, we started the Pet Food Bank as a way of keeping pets in their homes and with their families, instead of in shelters. Since its first year, we have been able to offer more than 1.4 million pounds of pet food to qualified, low-income families.

First Coast No More Homeless Pets’ Jacksonville Pet Food Bank provides a one-month supply of cat or dog food to households with up to 4 dogs and 5 cats. To be eligible, all of your pets must be spayed or neutered. If your family qualifies for free food, but your pet is not yet spayed or neutered, you are also eligible for our free spay/neuter surgeries.

Food Bank Volunteer
Food will only be given out on designated distribution dates.

  • Saturday, October 21, 2017 | 10 a.m. – noon
  • Saturday, December 2, 2017 | 10 a.m. – noon

Due to a decrease in donations, and increased demand, the Pet Food Bank will not have a regular monthly schedule. Instead, we will hold events when we have the food supply to do so. Dates are subject to change. Events will always be held on Saturdays from 10 a.m. until noon.

If you arrive before 9:30 a.m., you will be asked to wait off-site. No lines will be allowed before 9:30 a.m., however, lines are much shorter after 11 a.m.
