pet pantry


ARF is committed to helping families and pets stay together, and we wholeheartedly believe that no family or individual should feel the need to surrender their pet because of temporary financial hardship.

Our new Pet Pantry is here to support members of our surrounding communities who need assistance in providing food for their pets. As our supplies of donated food allow, we’re offering dog food, cat food and kitty litter on a weekly basis to families in need.  

The Pet Pantry is located at our shelter facility (10015 East River Road) and is open from 10 am to noon on Sundays. Proof of eligibility is not required, but we do ask that you contact us prior to arrival so that we can assure an ample supply of food is available. Please email or call the shelter at 440-234-2034 by Saturday each week to check availability. Donations will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

Because the pantry is donation driven, we cannot guarantee a brand or choice or brand in foods, but we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

If you are interested in contributing donations of food or litter to the pet food pantry, please contact us via email at

If interested in contributing financially to the program, please contact Cory Keller at (440) 234-2034 ext. 302 or
