Pet food bank 2

Pet Food Bank

Helping pet owners feed their pets during times of hardship.

Project details

Suggested by: Martha

Project partner: Pets Of The Homeless Ltd

Budget

$200,000.00

The Pet Food Bank (PFB) will collect pet food from across Victoria into a single warehouse. From there food will be sorted and re-packed into meal-sized portions. Through community organisations it will be distributed to marginalised pet owners who are temporarily unable to feed their pets .

The PFB may also be a drop-in centre distributing essential pet items and services directly to marginalised pet owners.

Opportunities for the local community to volunteer alongside existing Pets of the Homeless volunteers to establish and maintain the PFB with collections, distributions, and other operational work to support its sustainability. 


Currently there is a gap in support for those facing homelessness with their pets. We provide food assistance for the hungry pets of marginalised people when they need us most. More often than not, people go hungry just so their animals can eat. And by helping to feed their pets, that means pet owners will have more food for themselves, plus a few dollars remaining to pay for life’s necessities.

The pet food bank will be able to provide a regular and reliable source of pet food supply all year round to pet owners facing times of hardship.

POTH projects provide wonderful support for pets of those who find themselves in vulnerable situations and have no one in their lives to love or to receive love from.

Great initiative! People sometimes prefer to be homeless with their pets as the hooman accomodations dont always allow pets. #furbabies
