​​​​Brampton Animal Services recognizes that many families may face difficult financial times and may require assistance in caring for their pets. We believe that no one should face the difficult decision of having to surrender their pet because they cannot afford the cost of food.

The Emergency Pet Food Pantry aims to support pet owners with anywhere from one week to one month of pet supplies at a time, depending on demand and donations. Brampton Animal Services has partnered with a local PetValu and FreshCo to help make this initiative possible.

Businesses are invited to support the Emergency Pet Food Pantry by calling 905.458.5800 or emailing P​etFoodPantry@brampton.ca

Residents can donate sealed, dry or canned pet food for cats, dogs and other small animals at the Brampton Animal Shelter, located at 475 Chrysler Drive. For a list of needed items, visit the Brampton Animal Services Amazon Wish List ​or the Brampton Animal Services Facebook page.

Pet owners in need can access the Emergency Pet Food Pantry by calling 905.458.5800 to speak to an Animal Services representative, emailing PetFoodPantry@brampton.ca,​ or submitting a form online.​

Brampton Animal Services will package the items and provide pick-up instructions. Pet owners are asked to include details about their pet, such as the type of pets they have, how many pets they have and their pets’ ages, whether their pets need kibble or canned food, and any additi​onal supplies they may require to help take care of their pets.
