Pet Food Banks

The Colorado Pet Pantry operates a total of 60 pet food banks. We hold 20  “open to the public” pet food banks from Loveland to Alamosa with a concentration of pet food banks in the Denver and Boulder-metro areas. We also hold 37 “mini” pet food banks where we work with other nonprofit groups that assist low-income households.

Our pet food banks are closed if the local school district is closed due to weather. We will update the calendar for the rescheduled pet food bank.

We partner and distribute directly out of “human” food banks because:

  1. They have an established relationship with the neighborhood.
  2. We want all families in a neighborhood to have the resources to consistently feed their pets, keeping them out of shelters.
  3. We can leverage their administrative processes and their buildings.
  4. The availability of pet food helps to ensure that the already limited “human” food is reserved for the humans and pets receive balanced meals.

Clients of the pet food bank are eligible to receive pet food from the Colorado Pet Pantry every two months. Clients will be asked to fill out a registration form and agree to this statement “I understand that supplemental pet food is provided for my existing family pets only. New pets added after registration will not be served. Supplemental pet food is not intended to cover 100% of needs, clients are eligible every other month. I hereby agree to forever release Colorado Pet Pantry from any and all liabilities in any way related to, or arising from, participation in the pet food bank.”

If the client is interested in getting human food and is not a member of the HUMAN food bank, please click the link below for the partner HUMAN food bank to learn their policies and to get directions. Clients can bypass the human food bank to get pet from from the Colorado Pet Pantry at the “Open to the Public” locations.

The schedule below shows our “typical” day of the month at the partner food bank, but there are exceptions. To see the most accurate monthly calendar, please go to our Pet Food Banks Calendar.

If you need emergency pet food to tide you over until the next monthly pet food bank, please fill out this form. We work with area partners to make this program possible.
