Pet food assistance in Salt Lake City

Giving residents the resources needed to avoid surrendering their pets to shelters is critical to making Utah a no-kill state.

Many local animal shelters and other animal welfare groups in Salt Lake City provide food to residents in need. These pet food pantries not only fill bellies, they also help save lives by providing families with what they need to keep their pets at home and out of shelters.  

That's why Best Friends is supporting our partner organizations in providing low-cost or no-cost pet food to the people and pets in the community. 

To support these local organizations, we distribute all pet food donations we receive to local pet food pantries in the community.

How you can help

When you donate to Best Friends, you make it possible for us to deliver the supplies to a partner organization in need. 

Most pet food pantries rely on donations, and Best Friends supports these organizations by providing donated food and supplies. 

To make a food donation, you can order from our Amazon Charity Wish List and have your donation shipped directly to the pantry.

You can also drop off your donation at our lifesaving center in the donation bins near the front door. We also accept open bags of pet food that are taped or sealed securely.  

Please drop off or mail your pet food donations to:
