Alabama SPCA's Pet Pantry

Alabama SPCA Pet Pantry program assists qualifying low-income families in the West Alabama area by providing them with dog or cat food at no charge.  To ensure it is helping those most in need, an application and proof of low-income status is required.  Our goal is to keep pets in their current loving homes with their family.

Being dependent on the generosity of the public, availability and type of food may be limited.  Recipients should be prepared to provide appropriate care for your pet during these times.

Distribution Day is the 3rd Saturday of every month.

Restrictions for this program:

  • Only one applicant per household  will be accepted.
  • Our goal is to provide a two week supply of pet food per household, up to a reasonable limit.  We are dependent on donations and can not guarantee availability.
  • Only the applicant may pick up the food - unless other arrangements have been made with volunteers - photo identification and proof of limited/low income is required at pick up,
  • Agree that pets are for companionship and not for breeding or illegal activities
  • Agree to maintain healthy condition/environment living conditions for all pets, or let someone know if this is not possible
  • Agree to give fresh water daily
  • Agree not to tether or chain dog or cat 24/7
  • Agree that you understand that the quantities and brands of food as well as distribution limits are subject to change
  • Recipients MUST show proof of limited/low income to register for this program.  Acceptable proof includes:
    • SOM Medicaid or Medical Assistance Card
    • FIP (Family Independence Program)
    • Social Security Disability
    • Food Stamps/Bridge Card, WIC
  • Pick up day is once a month, when donations are available. We must limit the number of pets that are given food and this will be on a discussion/situation basis.
  • Do NOT bring your pets to pick up food..
