Dry and wet dog and cat food only.
We receive twice the dog food that we do cat food. When in doubt, please donate cat food.
We accept pet food within one year of the sell by date. If you wouldn’t feed it to your pet, please think twice about donating it.
Because of concerns for the health and safety of the pets of our clients, we are unable to accept open bags. If the food is in the original container and labeled with donor name and phone number, we will evaluate the food prior to discarding.
Cans dented near the top or bottom seams or that have obviously been punctured are not accepted. This is for the health and safety of our clients’ pets.
We do not accept these types of donations.
If you would like to donate new slip-leads, collapsible bowls, and/or waste bags please see our Amazon Wish List as we use these items in our Maverick Fund kits.
We need gallon-size, zipper-style plastic bags, like Ziploc® bags. We use these for breaking down large bags of dry food into manageable sizes.
While we work with other organizations to distribute pet food, Don’t Forget to Feed Me Pet Food Bank, Inc. is a stand-alone agency with our own board of directors, staff, funding, and 501(c)(3) status.
Yes, Don’t Forget to Feed Me is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization as recognized by the IRS. Your donation is fully tax-deductible.
If you make a monetary donation, we will send you a donation receipt via email or mail upon request.
If you donate pet food, this is considered an in-kind donation. We can issue a receipt if you supply us with your name and mailing address. Legally, we cannot assign a dollar value to goods donated in-kind. Please retain your purchase receipt for pet food donated and consult your tax professional.
Due to the tremdous need and unique service offered, we have a waitlist for new partners. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for an application to be on the waitlist.
