Having Trouble Affording Your Pet? Pet Food Pantries and Pet Care Financial Aid Can Lend A Hand!


What is a pet owner to do when their budget is stretched so tight that he cannot afford to buy food for his pets? Many pet owners have been known to skimp on meals for themselves in order to feed their furry companions while others had to make the painful decision of giving their pets up for adoption. What pet owners may not realize is that there are pet food pantries across the country who are more than willing to lend a hand for those who have been hit hard by the economy. 

In New Hampshire, pet owners have found relief from Elderpet a small organization whose mission is to provide dog and cat food for income qualified individuals. Simply by completing a Pet Food Application Rockingham and Strafford county residents receive an ample supply of pet food (as shown above)every 4-6 weeks.

In addition to food assistance, Elderpet has an established no-interest loan fund for responsible pet owners who find themselves with unexpected (not routine) veterinary expenses. The way that it works is if your pet needs care that you cannot afford, Elderpet pays the veterinarian the amount that you cannot cover. 

If you are in need of pet food and emergency care assistance and live outside of New Hampshire, don't worry. I've done my research for you as well! Here are a few links to get your paws on: 

- Angels 4 Animals,services range from financial aid to complete treatment to those pets and pet owners in need. 

I hope this information has eased the minds of all of my readers who have been experiencing financial difficulties. If you know of any other pet food pantries or pet care financial aid organizations, please share! Thank you and good luck to all!


  1. What great information! There have been many Dog with Bloggers who have found themselves in tough situation and typically setup a Chipin fund. But, this is also a very nice option too!


  2. Grrrrreat post! We have a food pantry at our church, and I think I'll also donate pet food there too.

  3. What a great post!!! Thank you so much for it!!! We need help too April!!!!!
    Thank you for this post!!!!

  4. In the Seattle area, Seattle Humane Society at (not connected with the national HSUS, which doesn't give direct care)operates a pet food bank and offers low-cost veterinary care. These organizations rely on donations of money and pet food in order to help those in need.

  5. Hey, it's Jet here. Thank you for sharing vital information. We needed help to afford my sister, Koko's (may she be frolicking over the Rainbow bridge), surgery in September. We were told about CareCredit, which instantaneously gave us the help we needed. We're still paying off interest free.

    We also have low cost spay/neuter programs around Miami Dade County and low cost immunizations programs.

  6. I love these responses and I appreciate that you've been adding on extra charities for others to read and review!
    Some forget that pet owners are skimping on their own meals in order to buy food for their pets so the pet food pantry is a great relief for those who need financial assistance.

  7. oh what a wunnerful post. fankfully we has not been hitted that hard yet, but wif this economy you neber knows what may happen and it is so good to has this info on hand.

  9. What a great post, other suggestions for pet owners are to try to get free/cheap food by using coupons and matching them up to sales, before I even had a dog I got free treats/food and gave away to friends who were struggling and donated to the animal shelter Also if your pets only eat certain foods contact the companies and ask for coupons/compliment them.

  10. Thank you, Katie, for reminding us to look for pet food coupons! For myself, I rarely clip coupons even though it is so easy to do so I will take your suggestion to heart! I know others will too!

  21. The method that will work the best will depend
    on if the book you want is protected by DRM. I can attest to that, but
    I have one major problem: I cannot afford to keep on paying up to $14 for every book that I want to read.

    You also need to know how you are going to publish your book and you have 3 choices:
