Pet Supply distribution occurs on Wednesday mornings from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. C.A.R.E. and other local organizations support this area of the pantry with food and supply donations!
Rescue Pack Chicago
Rescue Pack helps rescues by providing critically needed pet food and supplies so they may focus their funds on adoptions or medical care. They want to keep cats and dogs in their homes and avoid entering already overcrowded shelters.
They have also created a community of healthy pets with our pantries, vaccination and microchipping clinics. Our donors, volunteers and supporters provide the momentum we need. Please check their website or follow them on Facebook to see when they have their pop up food pantries and clinics.
With their physical Pet Food Pantry temporarily closed, staff and volunteers mobilized to safely bring pet food to pet owners in Chicago's most underserved neighborhoods where emergency help was needed most. PAWS Chicago's team is making deliveries to families who would otherwise be faced with relinquishing their pet without our support. We've provided a link to their website if you'd like more information about their mobile pantry.
Red Door Shelter (Cafe)
CAFÉ is a pet food assistance program for low income pet owners. Through a partnership with PAWS - Chicago and its Lurie Family Spay/Neuter Clinic, Red Door also provides food pantry participants with $10 vouchers to have their animals neutered and/or spayed. Participants must be willing to get their animals altered in order to be eligible for pet food assistance.
