Are You a Pet Owner in Need of Food for Your Pets?

We offer a county-wide pet pantry to low-income and financially disrupted residents of Prince George’s County and Montgomery County.  We also provide food to colony caretakers. We hold monthly food distribution events in Upper Marlboro and Landover and schedule food pickup appointments at our Rockville and Clinton locations. Please check below for details on our pantry locations.

Please complete our Pantry Assistance Request Form for help with pet food and we’ll reach back out in 10-14 days (we’re all-volunteer run).  

Colony caretakers: We do not have trappers for TNR efforts, so if you’re in need of TNR assistance, please reach out to the other organizations in the PG Community Cat Alliance. If you don’t have luck with them, email us at and we’ll see if there’s anything we can do to help.
