Treasure Hounds and the Animal Protection Society are proud to announce the opening of the Animal Protection Society Friday Harbor’s Pet Food Pantry.

The pantry is a community pet food bank to help keep pets in their homes by providing pet food for families in need. The pet food pantry is located at the Treasure Hounds store at 365-C Spring St. in Friday Harbor and open from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., Wednesdays for the pet food distribution. There will be both cat and dog food available.

Participants must be 18 years or older to receive goods, have proof of island residency and also have proof that the pets are spayed or neutered. If pets are not spayed or neutered, APS can help with some financial assistance in that regard.

Treasure Hounds and APS will be accepting both cash and pet food donations to keep this program going for as long as possible. Cash donations are preferred, as staff and volunteers have access to buy preferred foods at a discount rate, however, any non-opened and non-expired quality pet foods will be accepted, except for veterinary foods for medical conditions. Both canned and dry foods are acceptable.
