Pet Pantry Donation Program

Do you need assistance? View information on how you can get pet food.

Humane Society Silicon Valley has a new program to keep animals in their homes and ensure that no animals are surrendered to local shelters because their guardians cannot afford to feed them. Pet Pantry supports homeless animals, guardians and the community by providing food to pet guardians who cannot afford to feed their pets. Frequently, these animals are given up simply because the guardian has lost his/her job and can no longer provide the food that the animal needs.

It is devastating to witness the bewilderment in the eyes of one of these animals, as he watches his guardian leave him behind.  HSSV is committed to stopping this heartbreaking cycle.

This is where you can help!

You can make a difference in the lives of hundreds of dogs, cats, and humans by providing the food that enables guardians to care for and keep their beloved pets.

How to donate to the Pet Pantry

Individuals / Corporations:
When you have a donation of food for HSSV, clearly mark the package for “Pet Pantry” and fill out the online Pet Pantry donation form below. We will contact you within 24 hours.

Receipts are available for tax purposes.
HSSV will collect the donations from you or your organization and redistribute them to eligible caregivers/homeless throughout the community, ensuring that animals receive the food they need in order to stay with their guardians and families.

Animal Supply Stores:
Whenever you have a returned, expired, torn, or otherwise un-sellable bag of dog or cat food, call HSSV's Pet Pantry hotline and request a pick-up. HSSV will provide you with stickers that you can affix to the bag so that the food is clearly marked for donation to HSSV.

Within 24 hours, a HSSV volunteer will come to your location, check-in with the store manager, and pick up the designated bag(s) of food. The volunteer will leave behind a receipt that details the amount and type of donated food. The receipt will be printed on HSSV letterhead and will serve as documentation for tax and corporate records.
