PAWPantry Pet Food Assistance


To help pets and their people stay together and support our pet-loving community, the Sacramento SPCA provides free pet food to low-income qualifying families who can’t afford food for their household pets.

The PAWPantry program is available to applicants who have been approved by the Sacramento SPCA for a scheduled pick-up based on their enrollment in one of the following income assistance programs:

  • California Advantage (EBT)
  • Medical
  • SMUD Energy Assistance
  • PGE Energy Assistance

Applications will be accepted every 6 months, as space allows. Our next application period is tentatively scheduled for January 2024.
