Open to all community members in need, including federal employees in need of assistance with their pets during the shutdown.
Your SPCA for Monterey County offers a free Pet Food Bank to families in need in our community. The Pet Food Bank is located at the SPCA, 1002 Monterey-Salinas Highway, across from WeatherTech Raceway at Laguna Seca. Follow the SPCA road past the adoption center to Red’s Barn. The Pet Food Bank can be found just outside of Red’s Barn in a clearly marked cream-colored unit. The Pet Food Bank is self-service and is open daily from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
The Pet Food Bank operates on donations from the public, and while there is often food available please note that sometimes the shelves could be bare. We ask that you please be kind and only take what you need for a week. There are others who depend on this program, too. If the shelves are bare and you are a federal employee in need due to the shutdown, please visit Customer Service for assistance – we will help you.
We thank our generous donors for making this program possible! To donate food, please follow the directions above to place your food in the bank or visit our Animal Shelter lobby for assistance.
