Pet Food Pantry

Serving as a safety net for people and pets in need

We believe the best places for pets are with their loving families. We are committed to keeping more pets and families together with our Pet Food Pantry, which is open on a walk-in basis between noon and 4:00 pm, seven days a week (ask for help at Admissions). Dog and cat food are available to residents of Kitsap and Mason County who are low-income to aid in our efforts to support pet retention and reduce surrenders to the shelter.

Donated pet food is distributed free to qualifying households in the amount of a one-month supply for up to five pets.

To receive food, applicants must:

  • Be a resident of Kitsap or Mason County
  • Be experiencing financial hardship or qualify for low-income status
  • Applicant’s pets must be spayed/neutered. If pets are not spayed or neutered, the applicant must be willing to work towards getting their pets spayed or neutered, with assistance from Kitsap Humane Society, in order to continue to receive food assistance.

Individuals requesting pet food for the first time must fill out a Pet Food Pantry Application.
