The pet food bank is always happy to receive unopened pet food. It is best to donate name-brand food items such as the types you can purchase at your local grocery store or pet food store. Most of our clients are elderly and appreciate smaller bags because it is easier for them to lift and manage. All food items must be new, other items can be gently used.

Our most needed items are:

  • canned and dry cat food

  • kitty litter - clumping

  • cat toys & beds/blankets

  • dry and canned dog food

  • dog toys & beds/blankets/towels

  • leashes and collars

  • gift cards to stores to purchase flea, worm, hot-spot medicine, or other care items as needed

Organize A Food Drive

Organizing a food-drive at your place of work, church or school is one of the best ways to help our pet food bank clients!

Contact Us, so we can email you some information and plan on the timely distributions of the goods you collected. We are always happy to have the organizers of the food drive go with us when we deliver their collection. It's a great opportunity for you to meet some of our clients.

A helpful link is the Best Friend's Pet Food Drive Page. It provides lots of practical advice on how to organize, promote and conclude a drive.

Buy Hero The Golden!

Discover the amazement of life when you see beauty in yourself and others. The experiences detailed in this book are true, and actually happened to Hero the Golden and Lynn the author.


It is their hope that every person, regardless of age, can appreciate all of life's experiences-the good and the bad-and discover self-worth while learning self-control.


Life is waiting for us to live it. Every day can be full of peace, compassion, and strength. It is up to each of us to focus on the beauty that is all around us. It is our choice.
