Supporting owners with our dog food banks

We’ve opened pet food banks at some of our rehoming centres for anyone struggling to feed their dog.

As we face the worst financial crisis in decades, we’re urgently seeking to help the dogs who will feel the impact. We have opened some temporary pet food banks for anyone struggling to feed their dog(s) in these difficult times. 

We hope to open up more free dog food banks in our other rehoming centres to expand our reach to help as many dogs as possible. By working together, we can weather this storm and be there for the nation’s dogs when they need us most.

Please see below for details of the location and opening times of our food banks.
