Pet Food and Supply Pantry

COVID-19 IMPORTANT CHANGES:

  • The Pet Food & Supply Pantry is available to current and new clients. The pantry is open to any resident of Monroe County, IN who is experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 situation. Previously, in order to receive food or supplies, pets needed to be spayed/neutered and current on rabies vaccination. Due to the COVID-19 situation, these requirements are waived and will continue to be waived based on the nationwide social-distancing guidelines. Please bring a photo ID. 

  • Available items include dry dog food, dry cat food, cat litter, and treats. If possible, please bring a container to hold the dry food.

Applications will be reviewed once a year to confirm continued participation in the program.

 

Change of address should be brought to MCHA’s attention right away. Only one application will be accepted per address.

 

Since the food we provide is based on donations, we cannot guarantee the brand or amount of food that will be given each time. Brands may vary from visit to visit, therefore your pet(s) may experience stomach upset due to the change in food.

 

Food received from the MCHA Pet Food & Supply Pantry cannot be resold. Doing so will result in immediate termination from the program.

 

If there is a pet related item you need, please ask! Pet related items such as toys, treats, cat litter, bedding, crates, clothing, etc. are donated and are not available all the time. These items will be distributed on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE basis. 

 

The name on the application should be the person picking up the food – ID will be checked EACH VISIT.
