DID YOU KNOW? A large portion of our monthly shelter pet food needs are met through the Hill’s Science Diet Shelter Nutrition Partnership!  We are provided a supply of high quality Hill’s Science Diet adult cat and dog food to feed to our shelter animals and we only pay for the shipping and handling! (we do encourage cash donations to offset this expense!)  Read more about this program here.

This partnership provides a lot of food for our shelter animals, but we are still often in need of dry dog food, canned cat food and kitten chow.
