Need Help Feeding Your Pets? We’re Here For You.

The Rhode Island SPCA Pet Food Assistance program is designed to address the current and coming needs of pet owners who are affected by the COVID-19 crisis or are in need of temporary assistance feeding their pets. This program is for anyone in need. There is no application process or barriers in place that would  limit our ability to help pet owners immediately. 

We are offering shelter pick-up. Please note: Same day pick up is not available at this time. Shelter pick-ups must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance. 

How It Works:

Call  401-601-0054 or email 

If you call and do not reach a staff member, leave a name, phone number and if you are looking for pet food for a cat or a dog.

If you email, please provide the same information. 

A staff member will get back to you within 24 hours. If a message or email is sent on a weekend please note your request will be responded to the next business day.

Please note: We are unable to provide specific pet food brands, we will do our best to match the type of food you are currently feeding but unable to accept special requests for brands or sizes.

This emergency program is possible thanks to the support of Rumford Pet Center  and the support of people like you in our community through monetary donations. 

Want to donate products to help those in need? 

We are accepting donations of dog food in bags that are 12lbs or larger ONLY please, along with wet canned cat food and cat litter of any type! Thank you!
