With the intention of providing a sustainable service to our community’s pets, we will accept new pet food assistance clients as food supplies allow.  As such, there may be a waiting period before you are accepted into the program. We apologize for this as we rely on the generosity of the community to make the program a success. We strive to keep  wait times to as short of a period as possible. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
