The Pet Food Bank
We understand that pets are not just like family, they ARE family. The OMHS 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.
The program is made possible thanks to funding provided by the Government of Canada and United Way Halton & Hamilton through the Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF).
We are continually adding partners, so check back often.
If you have recently become homeless and are looking for temporary care for your pet, please check our Families in Transition program.
Ways to Help
Many years of experience have proven that the best way to support the Oakville & Milton Humane Society is with a financial donation. This provides us with the greatest flexibility to obtain exactly what food and other items we need. Your financial gift also enables us to maximize our purchasing power by taking advantage of shelter discounts and bulk buying so that we can ensure all of the animals will continue to receive the very best care they deserve.
If you would prefer to purchase or donate in-kind items the Pet Food Bank is in need of canned cat and dog food. Any food donation can be placed in our donation bin at the front of our shelter. Please make sure to indicate its for the Pet Food Bank.
