#PAWPantry (Drive Thru Free Pet Food Pantry)
Current Hours: Fridays, 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

The Sacramento SPCA is holding a weekly drive thru #PAWPantry to provide free pet food to those who can’t afford food or make it to the store.

Anyone can visit the drive thru #PAWPantry taking place at the Sacramento SPCA located at 6201 Florin Perkins Road in Sacramento from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. every Friday.

Pet owners should stay in their vehicles and follow drive thru signage and team member direction to pick up a bag of dog and/or cat food while supplies last.

The Sacramento SPCA’s PAWPantry is:

  • Open to residents in any county.
  • Intended to help with emergency pet food needs for those who have lost their jobs or do not have access to pet food due to the crisis.

An emergency supply of dog and/or cat food will be distributed to visitors as needed. Limit, one pantry distribution per household.
