Financial troubles are difficult for every member of your family – including your dog. In fact, if you really get painted into a financial corner, you may have trouble affording your pet’s food.

Fortunately, many non-profit groups and other organizations have programs designed to help owners in exactly these types of circumstances. Most of these resources are administered on a local level, so the specifics vary from one location to the next. You may need to do a little digging to discover what’s available in your area.

But, we’ll direct you towards some of the best places to start below. We’ll also explain a few other ways for low-income families to obtain other pet supplies and services for little or no money.

Common Sources for Free or Low-Cost Dog Food

A variety of organizations and businesses are willing to help low-income families feed their pets. Some of the most notable include:

1. Pet Shelters

Pet shelters often struggle to keep the animals under their care fed, but some of the most successful ones receive enough funding to provide food to needy families too. Some even establish pet-food banks!

Use this ASPCA resource to find shelters in your area.

2. Dog- or Pet-Oriented Non-Profit Organizations

Non-profit organizations come in a variety of flavors – they aren’t all shelters. Many non-profits have programs designed to help feed dogs that live with low-income families. For example, the Humane Society of the United States (related to, but different from, your local Humane Society Shelter) maintains a list of resources available to low-income dog and cat owners.

3. Veterinary Clinics

Some vets – particularly those in rural or impoverished areas – participate in charitable programs that provide free or low-cost dog food to families in need. Many will also provide reduced fees for spaying/neutering, vaccinations, and other services. Once again, the HSUS is here to help you find low-cost veterinary services.

4. Breed-Specific Organizations

Many breed advocacy groups and clubs provide assistance to low-income families. You’ll have to search for organizations that focus on your dog’s breed, but this AKC Parent Club List will make it easy to get started.

Also make sure to find breed advocacy groups online (even Facebook groups), as you may find locals who would gladly assist a fellow owner, even if that means shipping over food from another part of the country.

5. Pet Stores

Your local pet store may be willing to cut you a deal on your dog food bill if you explain your circumstances. Others may even be willing to let you barter services in exchange for dog food.

6. Religious Institutions

Churches, synagogues, mosques, and other religious institutions often provide assistance to low-income families, and this may include donating dog food.

You’re most likely to obtain assistance from your own religious institution, but many are willing to help anyone in need, regardless of religious affiliation.

7. Manufacturers

Some manufacturers offer free dog food samples – you simply need to write or call them and make a request. You won’t be able to feed your dog over the long-term with free samples, and you don’t want to be constantly changing your dog’s food (this can cause intestinal issues), but a few free trial-size bags of dog food in your cupboard may help out in a pinch.

8. Online Message Boards (Craigslist, etc.)

Whether they simply purchased too much food, had to rehome a dog, or purchased a bag of kibble that their dog didn’t like, people occasionally find themselves with surplus food and pet supplies on hand. These folks will often decide to simply give these items away, so it’s worth searching Craigslist’s “free” section and other online message boards.

You should obviously be very careful when doing so, as you won’t know the person making the donation. But if you’re truly in a bind, this may be a viable option.

Other Forms of Assistance for Low-Income Pet Owners

Food isn’t the only thing your dog needs. He’ll also need a bed, collar, leash, some toys, and other items. Fortunately, there are a few avenues by which you can often find low-cost or free versions of these supplies.

Your vet may be willing to provide services at reduced fees. Most vets go into the field of animal care because they love animals. This means that they’ll often be willing to work with you to ensure you can afford the care your pet needs. They may be willing to reduce the fees associated with various services, do small things (like nail trimming and tooth brushing) for free, or allow you to pay for services over time.

Local pet stores – especially those of the mom-and-pop variety – may be willing to give discounts to people having trouble affording their pet’s needs. They may also be able to give you a heads up regarding upcoming sales, clearance events, or similar promotions.

Social media networks often give you the chance to speak with other dog owners and find unique opportunities. You can search for mentions of free dog supplies or send out a message or request to your friends and acquaintances. This is often a great way to acquire second-hand beds, crates, and similar items.

As with foods, some manufacturers will provide free samples – often in exchange for a review on Amazon, Yelp, or some other website. Don’t get too excited; manufacturers aren’t going to line up to send you a free crate or dog bed, but some may provide low-cost items (such as ID tags, collars, supplements, or grooming products) in exchange for your honest feedback about the product.

Moral Support: Gathering Your Guts

It can be difficult to contact aid organizations or shelters to ask for help. Many people are embarrassed to ask for assistance and fear being judged. This leads many people to procrastinate – often at their pet’s expense. But don’t worry: It’s rarely as bad as you think it will be.

First of all, relatively few people decide to work in a non-profit or low-income assistance organization to dole out judgment; they go into such work because they love animals and want to help. They are typically warm, compassionate, and empathetic, and they’ll be happy to help in any way they can.

Additionally, the employees and staff at most non-profits and aid organizations have been trained to assist people in tough situations. They’ve assisted other owners in similar circumstances before and are taught techniques to help people without making them feel bad about their circumstances.

It’s usually best to rip off the Band-Aid quickly. So, go ahead and pick up the phone or visit one of these organizations in person. Chances are they’ll quickly put you at ease and, before you know it, they’ll be helping you obtain food for your dog.

Some people may feel better sending an email rather than speaking directly with the staff. That’s usually perfectly acceptable, and it may even be an easier method of communication for the staff. Don’t feel like you need to explain your life story in the first email – you simply need to make the connection and start the ball rolling.

For example, try something like this:

Hello. My name is ____________ and my family is currently experiencing some financial difficulties. We are doing everything we can to rectify the situation, but we are having trouble keeping our beloved family pet well-fed.

We were hoping that your organization may provide some type of assistance to families in situations like ours, or that you may be able to let us know about other local organizations that do.

We love our pet dearly and regret that we need to ask for help. We’d thoroughly appreciate any assistance you can provide.

Thank you for your time,

_____________________

(Feel free to copy and paste the above passage.)

Add your contact information to the bottom and attach a photo of your family with the pet. Make sure that you are patient while awaiting a response. Most shelters and non-profits are woefully understaffed, so it can take them several days (perhaps even a week or more) to get back to you. This further illustrates the importance in reaching out for help early, before your situation becomes too dire.

As you can see, help is available in a variety of places. Start by investigating the links, recommendations, and resources listed above, but if those prove fruitless, you’ll need to expand your search.

Are you aware of any specific aid organizations or non-profit centers that provide assistance to low-income families? We’d love you to share any relevant information in the comments below. The info you provide may very well help a family going through some tough times to keep their beloved pet healthy, happy, and well-fed.

Please note: We are not ourselves able to provide assistance with food, as we do not sell dog food! We will not respond to requests for dog food as we are unable to send any. Please use the resources mentioned in the article.

Right now, we are doing okay with providing good care for our 3 cats and dog Bella. I have donated to our local shelter and to ASPCA. We adopted Bella last March and she is an Angel! Our 3 cats are rescues to. The only struggle we have is vet bills. I took Bella to the vet for a wellness check after adopting her and she was pretty healthy except for dental issues. She had to have 1 extraction and another bonded. They cleaned her teeth and did a thorough examination. That visit wiped out my Care Credit. If you have any recommendations of lower cost vet care in NC , I would be grateful for any info you might have. Thank you.

Hey, Karen.
Unfortunately, we don’t have any specific advice for low-cost vet care in North Carolina. But, we’d recommend contacting one of your local shelters and inquiring — they often have arrangements with local vets.
You may also want to consider a pet health insurance plan.
Best of luck!

I wrote to Purina when thru digging I found out they distribute my brand thru Tractor supply, it is Retreiver hi pro, 26/17 meat first 23 for 50 #. Anyhow Purina will send you a great coupon once a month, for about $50.00 for pro-plan , you pay only the tax. Then you returm it to get 2 50 lb bags of yhe retreiver. Most employees let you do yhis. I have 9 rescues, 71 yrs old. I also help clean kennels at humane society, which I do even if not hard tikes all your suggestion good. I live on dirt road where some of these get dropped . I also mix rice and chicken parts if desperate. Your sughestions good. Do not give up your pets. They would NOT GIVE UP ON YOU. Highly recommend book “a cry unheard, the medical consequences of lonliness”should be mandatory reading. Think upu can purchase used at thrift books. Lastly, if not in your will, put it there.

I’ve tried calling a no kill / rescue shelter to see if their know of a place we could receive help, when they asked how many pets we have, I hung up, in fear of thinking they would send animal control out. I pray for my family that doesn’t happen, ” to receive help, cuts down on theft, and no one will remove any, ANY! of my pets without a war on their hands” We Love Them All!

Hi Brenda – this article is intended to give some options regarding how to get free or discounted dog food, but we ourselves aren’t able to help. Good luck!

The best thing you can do for your pet can also be the worst thing you do. While a proper homemade diet can be very beneficial for dogs, many pet owners don’t know how to prepare a meal that has all the nutrients dogs need to be healthy. Even some veterinarians aren’t skilled enough to give good advice on this manner. What does this mean for the pet owner? Lots and lots of research.

You need to research the types of nutrients your dog needs based on breed, age, lifestyle, and other criteria. This can take a long time, but can result in the healthiest food your dog has ever eaten.

Recently my husband and I have been experiencing financial difficulties. My husband had to quit his job. My husband has COPD and is on oxygen.
He’s receiving disability. There’s a big difference in our monthly income now. I’m 55 I have been looking for work to help with our situation after years of not working. We have 3cats and a dog we consider them our children. We don’t have children of our own. We doing the best we can for our animals right now but we can’t them what they deserve now. We refuse to give them up their such a big part of our hearts and lives.
Can you please refer me to some places that can help me with my situation. Thank you and God bless you and your family. .
