DF2FM FAQ

We are able to accept wet and dry cat and dog food of any brand, variety and/or type. 

We receive twice the dog food that we do cat food, but demand is almost identical. When in doubt, please donate cat food.

We do not currently accept cat litter.

We accept pet food which has expired six months or less. If you wouldn’t feed it to your pet, please think twice about donating it.

Cans that are dented near the top or bottom seams or that have obviously been punctured are not accepted. This is for the health and safety of the pets of our clients.

Because of concerns for the health and safety of the pets of our clients, we are unable to accept open bags.

We do not accept these types of used 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. We go through a LOT of them!

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 can 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.
