Pet Food Pantry

Here Today Adopted Tomorrow maintains a pet food pantry to help low-income community members feed their pets.

 

In addition to our on-site pantry, we provide pet food to several local human food pantries in Hardwick, Monson, Palmer, Southbridge, and Wales.

 

We are thankful to the Walmart Community Grant, the Schwartz Charitable Foundation, the Monson Lyons Club, our corporate sponsors, and individual donors from our generous community for supporting HTAT’s Pet Food Pantry.

Who qualifies for assistance?

Qualified applicants must live in our service area (Brimfield, Holland, Palmer, Monson, Southbridge, Sturbridge, Wales, Ware, or Warren). Feeders and caretakers of any feral cats or colonies in these towns are also eligible.

You must also meet at least one of the following conditions:

 

  • have experienced a recent loss of income

  • have a household annual income less than or equal to 150% of the federal poverty level, or

  • receive government assistance (some restrictions apply).

Donating Food

Here Today Adopted Tomorrow happily accepts donations of wet and dry cat or dog food. You can choose items right from our Amazon wishlist or ship items directly to our shelter from Chewy, Walmart, or your favorite pet store.

If you want to drop off a food donation in person, please bring it to Here Today Adopted Tomorrow's shelter, located at 180 Sturbridge Road in Brimfield. We accept wet or dry food for both dogs and cats. Donations can be left on the front porch of the red building.

How will I receive pet food?

If your application is accepted, we will estimate how much food you’ll need for two weeks and notify you of the next pickup day, time, and location. If you need pet food sooner, it may be possible to arrange a more convenient date.

 

When picking up your pet food, please make sure to wear a mask and follow social distancing guidelines.

You can renew your order every two weeks. We cannot guarantee food due to limited supplies, but we will try our best.

The deadline to apply is the Thursday before the next pick-up event. This deadline applies to both new and returning pantry users. We host pick-up events every other Saturday, and post a reminder each week on our Facebook page.

We will notify you of our decision within a few days of receiving your application. Our Pet Food Pantry is run entirely by volunteers, so please be patient. 

HTAT is a proud member of the

Pet Food Task Force - Full Bowls. Happy Bellies.

Please note: The HTAT Pet Food Pantry provides cat and dog food, but may occasionally have other pet foods or pet care items on hand. All of these items are based on what is donated to us, so we cannot guarantee availability. We cannot fulfill requests for specific brands of food. If your pet requires a special diet, we may contact you with questions.
