Illinois and Northwest Indiana Pet Food Pantries


I am grateful to the Illinois Department of Agriculture for putting together a list of pet food pantries. Increasingly, there is a need. For your convenience, I have them listed here – but this is as of April 1, 2020 – and may be updated. Updates, here. (IDOA indicates websites and confirmed but not the phone numbers). And if you know of any others feel free to email me ([email protected]) and the Illinois Department of Ag. If you don’t live in Illinois, check your state department of agriculture.
