We accept wet and dry dog and cat food, even opened bags, as long as they are not expired.  This food is used to help those going through tough times, that may not have the funds to purchase food for their pet(s).

If you need a helping hand in feeding your pet, you can contact us and ask to be part of our Pet Food Bank program.  This program is designed to help residents of the City of Kawartha Lakes to feed their pets when finances are tight.

Please note, this program is for occasional assistance.  Food is on a first-come, first-served basis and is limited.  We reserve the right to refuse requests.
