The Pet Food Bank

keeping people and pets together - The Pet Food Bank

We understand that pets are not just like family, they ARE family. The Oakville & Milton Humane Society’s (Pet Food Bank) provides pet food and supplies through a network of established partner agencies and food banks to address this important need in our community. By providing assistance to pet owners, we will help keep people and their pets together for life.

Please contact our partners directly to participate through their programs. We are continually adding partners, so check back often.  If you are unable to obtain assistance through a partner, please contact us at foodbank@omhs.ca or 905-845-1551 ext 127.

Additional Information about the Program

We do our best to provide the desired products.  If a specific product is not available, a suitable product may be substituted.  The OMHS Pet Food Bank is run on a donation basis, therefore we cannot guarantee specific products are available at all times.  

How to determine quantities of food needed:

For easy storage, pet food is delivered in 23”x13”x16” bins.

Each bin contains an average of 12 x 1kg bags

On average: 

  • A medium sized dog (25-45 lbs) will use 1 bag per week.
  • An adult cat will use 1 bag every 2 weeks.
