Services to Keep Your Pet

Pet Food & Supplies Distribution

For Tampa Bay citizens who are struggling to care for their pets, we offer free a small bag of dog and a free small bag of cat food at our shelter every Tuesday and Saturday 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, to help offset some of your costs. In addition to the free food, we now offer more, with suggested donations on collars, leashes, beds, toys, canned wet cat and dog food, clothes, and much more.

Receiving Food & More assistance is on a first-come, first-serve basis.

If you would like to help those owners and pets in need, please donate a bag of pet food or supplies to our shelter.


For homebound and elderly citizens who are unable to travel to our shelter, we deliver monthly supplies of dog and cat food. Recipients must apply and qualify for Animeals delivery.
