For Those In Need
We realize how much your pets mean to you.
During difficult economic times, some families are facing the choice between feeding themselves, and feeding their pets. This choice is made every day in many households of low-income families. Many families live paycheck to paycheck, have lost a job, are seniors on fixed incomes, are dealing with an illness or disability, or are hit with an unexpected medical emergency, high electric bill, or car repair that throws them behind and is preventing them from caring for their pet.
We Can Help!
We ask you to remember this is a temporary pet food assistance program run mostly by volunteers to provide help through difficult economic times. Please understand that pet food is limited by supply and because we are offering assistance for financial hardship, we ask that you do not take in more pets than you already have.

To qualify for the pet food pantry program those seeking pet food need to be approved in person at a one-time Application appointment prior to receiving their first monthly distributions. Approvals for receiving pet food will be based on the household income guidelines listed below. If your family exceeds the income guidelines, please let us know your circumstances. We can review each situation on a case by case basis.Proof of income can be a pay stub, tax return, unemployment stub, or a card or award letter from a government assistance program.

Thank You For Your Amazing Generosity
The Pet Food Pantry is the area’s first dedicated charitable pet food resource and was established to help prevent the abandonment or surrender of animals when their families cannot afford to feed them.
Kristen Kenyon, Kristen Below, Christy Hill and Samantha Crowe are the coordinators of The Pet Food Pantry of Eastern North Carolina, and believe this can make a difference in overburdened shelters and rescues by helping ease the stress of those facing financial difficulty feeding their pets. Because when people must choose what to cut from their grocery lists, pets often are among and those that suffer most.
We believe that The Pet Food Pantry is a gift for the entire community…and that by lending a hand when times are tough and providing dog and cat food for the companion pets of anyone in honest need we can ease these burdens on the families and the community.
We require the spaying & neutering of the pets in the homes of the families we are helping. Through donations we are able to provide surgery certificates for free or a reduced cost, as well as rabies shots to those in need.
Thank you for all the generous support and donations that allows these pets to stay safe at home and out of the shelters.
