Helping pets and owners stay together
In addition to meeting the needs of the humans in their households, many families on the South Shore are also doing their best to care for their pets. People often share their own limited food resources with their pets and sometimes feel that pet surrender is their only option.
The South Shore Pet Food Pantry (SSPFP) has been partnering with Interfaith's food pantry since 2016 to provide supplemental cat and dog food assistance to clients, with the goal of keeping pets and their owners together and healthy.
Clients can receive pet food on each visit, when available.
The pet food is provided by donations from individuals and corporations. To find out more about the SSPFP, and make a donation of cat or dog food, please visit the South Shore Pet Food Pantry.
