Opened in 2015, Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter’s Pet Food Bank provides over 5,000 pounds of pet food each year to pet owners in need. Its mission is to help pet guardians keep their pets during times of uncertainty and also reduce the number of animals being surrendered to the Shelter.

Friends Pet Food Bank currently partners with Mizell Senior Center’s “Meals on Wheels” Program, AAP Food Samaritans, Well In The Desert, and Bloom In The Desert Ministries. Please contact these agencies for more information on how to qualify for their pet food programs.

The Palm Springs Animal Shelter Pet Food Bank program provides dry dog and cat food (and sometimes wet food) to help you nourish your pets during times of need We can support the food needs of up to three pets per household. Our supplies and food brands fluctuate but the PSAS Pet Food Bank uses only food from unopened bags/containers that are not expired.

Our ability to provide food to the pets of people in need is due directly to the kindness of our donors and friends. Donations of wet and dry unopened pet food can be dropped off inthe Palm Springs Animal Shelter’s outside donation bin:
