COVID-19 Update

We understand that there are many pet parents in our community who are currently not able to work due to the latest restrictions from COVID-19. We believe that pets belong with their people, and we never want a pet parent to have to consider giving up their pet because they are going through a tough time financially.

Our doors are open and our Pet Food Pantry is here to support any community member that is currently finding it difficult to provide food for their pets during this time. Our Pet Food Pantry is open every Saturday and Wednesday from 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm.

About the Pet Food Pantry

The Humane Society for Tacoma & Pierce County’s Pet Food Pantry supplies pet food to those who are in temporary need of dog or cat food.

In order to receive pet food, you must provide identification and proof that your pets are spayed or neutered. If your pets are not altered, you will be given food for the first visit (up to a months’ worth) and you will need to show proof at the next visit to be eligible. Proof of spay/neuter must then be provided for subsequent Pet Food Pantry visits to receive food.

How do I prove that my pet is spayed or neutered?

Proof that your pet is spayed or neutered can be provided by the veterinarian who performed the surgery or by a veterinarian who examines the animal. In emergency situations where proof of spay/neuter is not available, the staff at the Humane Society for Tacoma & Pierce County can evaluate the animal’s status.
