When you get in touch, please tell us about your current circumstances, 

  1. where you are situated in the UK?
  2. what your current circumstances are and why you need support?
  3. what are your pets, ages, how many and breed details if appropriate? 
  4. do they eat wet or dry food?
  5. do they have a diagnosed condition which means they need to be on a specific diet ? 

We will then let you know what support is available.

 

How do I get the food :

Your food will be ready either for delivery or for you to collect from a designated agreed place at an agreed time and day. 

PLEASE READ

1. In some circumstances we can also provide urgent support the same day, so your pet does not go without food.

2. You are not automatically eligible for support by being disabled or in receipt of benefits. 

3. We are not a long-term solution; we are for short term support.

 4. We are not there primarily to support additional pets coming into your household. 

5. What would you do if you could not have the support from the pet food bank, what are your options short term, or long term? 

6. Please do not overly prescribe what you want as we can only give what we have had donated. We will always try and match dietary needs where possible. 

7. We are not a free pet food shop! We are there for those who have an identifiable need. 

8. When things are improved for you, please consider donating back to the pet food bank.

 

When you get in touch, please tell us about your current circumstances including information about all your pets.
