Pet Foods and Supplies

Dog Food – We need both dry and canned Purina Dog/Puppy Chow, Purina ONE Dog/Puppy food, Purina ProPlan Dog/Puppy food and Iams Dog/Puppy food. We also use Hills Pet Nutrition A/D canned dog food, which is a prescription-only food that can be purchased at most vet clinics. These are the brands prescribed by our veterinarians to best serve the pets in our shelter. We accept other types of donated pet food, but those donations will be used to stock our Low-Income Pet Food Pantry and made available to families struggling to purchase food for their own pets.
