First Coast No More Homeless Pets

Pet Food Bank

Pet Food BankWe started our Pet Food Bank in 2010 as a way to keep pets in their homes and out of shelters. The program is run by volunteers and relies solely on community donations.

Pet food is distributed several times a year to qualified, low-income families whose pets are spayed or neutered. Families who qualify for free food also qualify for free spay and neuter surgeries.

For those who qualify, we provide a one-month supply (approximately) of cat or dog food for up to 4 dogs and 5 cats per household. Since 2010, we have distributed more than 800,000 pounds of pet food through our Pet Food Bank program!

Food will only be given out on designated distribution dates.

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. utnil 1 p.m.

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. Lines are much shorter after 11 a.m.
