Qualifications For Assistance

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.

 Call the Pantry @ 252-689-6122 and listen to the VM for instructions, dates, times, and required documentation for emergency and first time distributions. 

Please bring a valid Photo ID when applying

NOTE: Due to volume, we are not able to donate to large cat colonies. Our main focus is helping families in need hang onto their pets by providing free pet food.  Please contact us if you have a colony and we will try to help with finding resources.

Please bring Proof of Income

NOTE: This program is for individual pet owners. We are unable to provide assistance to independent rescuers. If you have rescued more animals than you are able to feed, we can provide you with information and recommend that you work with a 501c3 Rescue.

Proof of Spay & Neuter

NOTE: We do not provide pet food assistance to breeders (of any kind). If you have puppies that you are planning on selling, you are strictly prohibited from pet food assistance. We strongly recommend that all pets be spayed/neutered and would be happy to assist with costs if needed.
