Pet Food Pantry


The Connecticut Humane Society's Pet Food Pantry is based out of the Newington Shelter, and provides free quality pet food for people in financial need who are struggling to feed their pets. Our goal is to keep pets in their homes and out of shelters!

The pet food pantry opened in November 2010 in response to the difficult economic times affecting pet owners in Connecticut. The initial food drive collected 5 tons of dry pet food, over 4,000 cans of food, and over 500 boxes of pet treats. Despite the large volume of donations collected, all of the food was quickly dispensed. The pantry currently provides pet food for several hundred dogs and cats each month, and the need for this crucial service continues to grow.

Ways You Can Help

  • Arrange a collection drive in your place of business, worship, school or community. Please download our Pet Food Drive Starter Kit to start planning your collection! 
  • Donate food including unopened, unexpired food for companion pets. Click here to view the wish list. You may bring your donation to the Newington shelter, or to one of our drop-off locations in the community.
  • Make a monetary contribution to supplement the food donations we receive. A donation of only $30.00 will keep a dog (or three cats) in their home for one month. Click here to make a secure donation online to the Pet Food Pantry Fund.
  • Display the pet food pantry flyer at your place of business to raise awareness of the need for donations. Contact to receive flyers.
