Senior Pet Food Program

As our primary outlet for distributing pet food donations to the local community, the Senior Pet Food Program is intended for human service agencies in metro Atlanta. Organizations that apply are eligible to receive donated pet food and supplies at no cost to supplement their programs.

Our aim is to streamline access to resources for folks in our community struggling to feed their families and increase familiarity with pet resources available to help.

If your organization is interested in participating or just wants to learn more, please fill out the application.

    What can I expect after I apply?

    We will set up a phone call to get to know your agency, answer any questions, and clarify next steps. The Senior Pet Food Program has limited enrollment, so qualified organizations may be added to a waiting list.

    During this call, will discuss your agency’s need for pet food and our current donated inventory during our phone call. Generally, there are three opportunities for receiving pet food:

    • As available: Most agencies will be onboarded at this level initially. We will notify agencies when pet food is available for pick-up from our Norcross warehouse location on a case-by-case basis.
    • By request: All participating agencies are welcome to make specific requests for pet food (often for events). For example, a community group may be hosting a summer event and want to provide pet food at this event. Requests should be made at least two weeks prior to the event and cannot always be accommodated. We will communicate directly with the requesting agency to alert you if we can or cannot fulfill your request for pet food.
    • Monthly: A limited number of agencies can receive a set amount of pet food monthly. Our ability to provide for agencies monthly relies on our donations. We are striving to secure more donations to make this option available to more agencies, but currently have limited capacity.

    What will be required to participate?

    • Sign our In-Kind Donation Agreement
    • Provide up-to-date number of pet-owning clients in program
    • Provide pictures and stories of donations in use
