Pet’s Pantry at ECHO, Salvation Army & Caritas

Donate a bag of food and help a pet STAY at home!

Sadly, a leading cause of pet surrender calls at the Humane Society is an inability to afford pet food. Now, we would certainly never adopt a pet into a home where its care would be unaffordable, but once a pet’s in a safe and loving home, we want to do what we can to keep them there! We believe it’s within our mission to do what we can to help the people who love those pets in need. Pet’s Pantry is a once monthly pet food pantry for families and individuals pre-qualified through ECHO in Janesville, Salvation Army, & Caritas. 

Because we have friends like Blain’s Farm & Fleet (who provide consistent and high-quality nutrition to all the shelter pets at no cost), we’re able to use the donations from individuals and organizations like Petco, Walmart, Sam’s Club and Mounds to ensure that Pet’s Pantry has full pallets of food to distribute each month to meet this very real community need. 

Of course, we still help folks in need who are not clients of ECHO by donating food as it’s available at our shelter. If we can help, we help! 

Want to help make a difference? Drop off a bag of cat or dog food at our shelter! We’ll love you for it and so will pets in need!
