The Pet Pantry was founded with the primary mission of helping to prevent surrender of peoples beloved pets because they could not afford to provide them with the proper food. We started helping only 18 families over 5 years ago and today we are helping over 200, with more on our waiting list. We hold food handouts for those families on out program once a month (See Schedule Below). To be considered for our food program, you must be approved after filling out an application. You can access this application and the criteria for being on the program by clickingHERE.
****NOTE: Please understand that demand for this service currently is greater than the supply of food we have on hand for it. We will not take someone onto the program unless we are sure that we can supply monthly food to them. As such, there may be a waiting period before you are accepted into the program. We apologize for this, but as a program that is driven by food donations, we are reliant on the generosity of the community to make the program run. We try to keep these wait times to as short a period as possible.

****** Dates could be subject to change, cancellations or change of dates will be noted on our website, voicemail, and notification sent through email to our clients.********
The Pet Pantry of Lancaster County is proud to be helping out those in need!
We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization working to help avoid the surrender of a family pet due to the lack of resources to feed and care for them. The Pet Pantry of Lancaster County wants to lend a temporary helping hand to ease the burden, whether the cause is from trying economic times, health, or emergency related circumstances. It is more evident than ever before that our pets not only bring us companionship and love but they are sometimes our only source of comfort when facing hardship. We are working in cooperation with local animal organizations to do what we can to keep family pets where they should stay-in their forever home.
