To help these people most in need, the PAWS Chicago Pet Food Bank provides emergency assistance to families facing unemployment, foreclosure, or other financial crises, thus enabling them to keep their pets. They provide pet food and pet supplies, such as cat litter, leashes, collars, cat carriers, and litter boxes until the family is able to provide these necessities on their own. In addition, owners can receive a voucher for free spay/neuter surgeries for their pet.

Tree House Humane Society Pet Food Pantry
Tree House’s pet food assistance program serves low-income or fixed-income families and individuals by providing supplemental food for companion animals.
