Did you know that the JHS Pet Food Pantry distributes more than 170,000 lbs of pet food to families in need each year? Our Pet Food Pantry serves seniors, community members with disabilities, veterans, and families in crisis.

Sometimes the only difference between keeping a pet in their home and out of the shelter is one meal. With your help, we can keep best friends together and save space in our shelter for animals who are lost, abandoned, or neglected.

As a Pantry Pal, you will receive a special acknowledgment on our social media to let our 90,000+ followers know about your good deed and help raise exposure for our program.

Becoming a Pantry Pal is easy:

  • Select a level (Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze) using the guide below.
  • Decide how, when, and where you will gather donations.
  • Complete this form to let JHS know that you are participating and when to expect you.
  • Drop off your items at JHS and know that you helped save lives in your community!

Goal Levels:

JHS is open 7 days a week for delivery drop-off. Pickup is available on a limited basis. We ask that you let us know when you are coming so that we can arrange a picture and properly thank you on social media.
