Who qualifies for assistance?

Individuals must be a resident of our service area (Brimfield, Holland, Palmer, Monson, Southbridge, Sturbridge, Wales, Ware and Warren) Feral feeders caring for any feral cats or colonies in these towns are also eligible.

Individuals must also have experienced loss of income, COVID-19 illness, or participate in some kind of government assistance program.

How do I apply?

Email pampam@heretodaysanctuary.org or call or text 413-324-8229 and ask to speak with someone about the pet food pantry or leave a message with your name and phone number and someone will return your email, text or call. 

When you speak with our friendly shelter staff, please be prepared to give your name, address, telephone number, email address, and be ready to answer the following questions:

  • Could you please share your qualifications for the program?

  • How many cats and dogs do you own?

  • If you have dogs, what are their approximate weights?

  • What type of food does your cat or dog eat? (ie. canned food, dry food, or a specific brand)

  • Are your cats or dogs spayed and/or neutered?

  • Are your cats up to date on vaccines?

  • What other assistance do they need? (ie. veterinary assistance, low-cost spay/neuter or vaccines, supplies like cat litter)

How will I receive pet food?

Once your request is reviewed, a staff member let you know the next pickup event day and time. If you are in need of pet food sooner than the pickup date, arrangements can be made to pickup food on a different date and time. When picking up your pet food, please make sure to wear a mask and follow social distancing guidelines.

When filling your order, our staff will estimate how much food you'll need to last for two weeks. You can request assistance again after two weeks and we will review your request as supplies are limited.
