We Are Delighted To Announce The Pet Food Bank Is Now Open

News Update: October 18, 2019

Food Needed

We’ve gone through nearly all the food everyone donated a couple months ago to our Pet Food Bank (we shared a large amount with our friends at The Resource Connection Food Bank, to make the food easier for those in need to obtain), and are now reaching out to ask our generous supporters to help replenish our stock.

An important goal of your Calaveras Humane Society is to keep animals that are loved right in their homes where they belong.

Donations may be brought to our shelter during open hours, and we’ve updated our Amazon Wishlist with a number of low-cost selections (free shipping for Prime members!).

Only dry food needed at this time — we’re all set with canned. We particularly need dry CAT food. For kitties, we absolutely love the 6-lb. bags, though larger bags are of course welcome as well. For dog food, the 15 to 22-lb. bags are best for our needs.

Thank you in advance to our wonderful community for helping keep this essential program going! ♥️🐾

We Asked, You Answered!

We recently asked for donations to our Pet Food Bank, and my oh my, did our community ever come through! The Amazon Fairies delivered more than 700 pounds of food to us thanks to your generosity. We’re blown away, and so very grateful.

We try to be judicious and only ask for things when we have legitimate need — so you won’t be hearing us request pet food for a while. We are all set!

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who contributed. The families participating in our Pet Food Bank, and their pets, are thankful too. ♥️🐾

thank you

Food needed.

The launch of our Food Bank has been a huge success! So successful, in fact, that we have a plea to make. If you’re able, can you donate some pet food?

Thank you in advance to all who can give food needed to help your neighbors keep their pets!

We Can Help You

We’re delighted to announce the official launch of the Calaveras Humane Society’s Pet Food Bank. Now, low-income Calaveras residents may enroll to receive pet food monthly to supplement what they’re already able to provide. Our goal is to never let the cost of pet food prevent a well-loved pet from remaining in its home.

Our Pet Food Bank page has more information.

You Can Help Us

We need pet food donations!

You can bring unopened bags and cans of dog and cat food to our office during our regular hours or swing by one of our local drop off points. Our Pet Food Bank page has more information about drop off points in Calaveras County.

Or order supplies from our Amazon Wishlist. They will be delivered to us.

We rely on community support to operate this program.
