Pet Food Pantry
Friends of Strays has joined forces with the St. Petersburg Free Clinic, Meals on Wheels, and Daystar Life Center for our Community Pet Food Pantry. The Friends of Strays’ Pet Food Pantry has been providing under-resourced households with free cat and dog food since 2015.
In the past, the program has allowed for community members to come to the shelter during open hours to collect food for their pets. Now, they will be redirected to the St. Petersburg Free Clinic at 836 3rd Avenue North where they will also have access to other social services.
Friends of Strays still collects donations at the shelter, picks up donations from local Target and Walmart stores, and arranges for transport and distribution.
In 2021, the Friends of Strays Pet Food Pantry provided over 26,000 pounds of cat and dog food to our underserved community members.
