The Friendship Pet Food Pantry is a program of The Friendship Center, a 501(c)3 organization. Contributions are tax deductible.
Become a Friend of FP2! Donate $25 or more, and we’ll feature your favorite pet in our Best Friends Pet Gallery.
Become a Pet Pantry Partner! We’re looking to connect with pet stores and pet food distributors that will designate open/near-expiration/left-over food for FP2, and with local businesses that will place a donation bin or coin donation box in their store.
Contact us if you’re interested. We’ll handle pick-ups!
