What To Expect
Qualified owners can attend the pet food bank once per month, up to six times a year. The first time you attend each year you will need to sign the CFA Food Bank Guidelines and provide your benefits statement/proof of income. Each time you attend, a selection of food (based on availability) will be prepared for you.
What Is Available
Currently we are able to provide supplies for cats, dogs, and based on availability small mammals and birds. At this time we cannot consistently service exotics/exotic hybrids or farm animals. If your pet has specific dietary needs, we will try to accommodate. In addition to food, the CFA can provide litter, leashes, toys, beds, kennels, and more. (based on availability).
Delivery With Meals-On-Wheels
For senior pet owners that are struggling to provide for their pets, CFA partners with South Sound Senior Services and Meals-On-Wheels to deliver supplies directly. To get on the Meals-On-Wheels delivery schedule, contact South South Senior Services at (360) 586-6181 and let them know you want to participate in the CFA Pet Food Bank.
