Pet Food For Families In Need

Furry Friends Pet Food Pantry

The Wisconsin Humane Society believes that tight financial times should not break the bonds of love and companionship between people and their companion animals. WHS temporarily provides pet food, treats, and kitty litter for individuals who are struggling to provide food for their animals. This program has helped many people keep their animals in homes where they are loved.

At this time, we are only able to offer full Pet Food Pantry services at our Milwaukee and Ozaukee Campuses. If you need resources in the Racine, Green Bay, or Door County areas, please call the shelter nearest you for resources.

Pet food is available first-come, first-served to anyone who expresses a need. The Furry Friends Pet Food Pantry is entirely donation-driven and there may be times that we will not have enough donations to meet your needs. You are welcome to call ahead to find out if we have any donated food prior to making your trip into the shelter since we will not be able to set aside food for pick-up. The best time to pick up is during regular adoption hours (select a campus here for hours). 

Donate to the pantry

By contributing to the Furry Friends food program, your generosity helps keep animals in the homes where they're loved and cherished. We are always in need of dog food (wet or dry), cat food (wet or dry), dog treats, cat treats, and kitty litter.

We accept donations of all kinds, but we can only use unopened bags of food for the Furry Friends Pet Food Pantry. Any opened or ripped bags are passed along for use in our Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. All sizes, brands, and types of food are greatly appreciated! Donations can be dropped off at any WHS shelter during our regular operating hours.

Donate from home 

We offer steep discounts on pet food, treats, and kitty litter if you donate them to WHS through our online store! Simply select a product to donate, check out as usual, then we'll take the product off our store shelves and stock them in our Pet Food Pantry. That's it!
Note: During checkout, please ignore any "in-store pickup" language; if you purchase any of the products listed in the link above, we know you are donating to the shelter and won't be picking the item up. Once you've paid, you're all set and we'll take care of the rest!

On behalf of the many people and animals served by this vital program, thank you so very much for your contribution!
