At Parachutes For Pets, we’re dedicated to helping low-income individuals improve their pets’ health and well-being. Our accessible programs make a difference. Join us on this impactful journey!
Enroll in our one-year program to receive pet food assistance every two months, supporting up to two pets per household with a maximum of 30 days’ worth of pet food. While the program focuses on providing food, additional supplies are available on a case-by-case basis, subject to availability.
An emergency is a sudden, unforeseen event, like a fire, flood, or domestic violence incident. This can include situations where a child is placed in foster care with their pet or if someone is homeless in severe weather. If you or your pet are in immediate danger, please call 911.
What is NOT considered an emergency:
Food deliveries & missed pick up dates
Requesting a hamper for a newly acquired pet
