Pet Food Banks

The Colorado Pet Pantry holds eight monthly “open to the public” pet food banks in the Denver and Boulder-metro area.

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 partner “human” food banks are eligible to receive pet food from the Colorado Pet Pantry every two months. Please click the link below for the partner food bank to learn their policies and to get directions.

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.
