New for 2022!

The RI SPCA is proud to announce the soft launch of our new Pet Food Pantry.  

This program is designed for pet owners experiencing financial hardship with the goal of keeping pets in their current homes. Through recent donations, we are able to provide free dog and cat food to households that may be in need of temporary assistance.

If you are in need of assistance:

  1. Fill out a Pet Food Pantry Request Form
  2. Wait for a call from a staff member or volunteer*
  3. Schedule a pick up time 

*Please do NOT call our front desk requesting assistance.  You will be contacted within 48 hours of submitting a request form.

Please note: Our Pet Food Pantry shelves are stocked solely by donations and supplies are limited.  We will take any dietary requests into consideration, however there are no guarantees.  This program is designed to provide supplemental food on a temporary basis and not for long term.  All requests will be fulfilled on a first come, first serve basis.  

Help keep our Pantry shelves stocked!

We are always in need of the following items*:

  • Wet & dry cat food
  • Wet & dry dog food
  • Cat litter
  • Small animal food pellets 
  • Dog & cat treats

Donations can be either dropped off here at the RI SPCA, located at 186 Amaral Street in Riverside, RI or shipped directly from Amazon or any online retailer.

*bags of donated food must be unopened.
