Pet Food Pantry

Are you experiencing financial hardship and in need of food for your pet?

East Bay SPCA holds a drive-thru Pet Food Pantry that offers cat and dog food to pet parents needing support feeding their pets.

When and where is the drive-thru Pet Food Pantry held?
The Pet Food Pantry is held every other Friday from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM (or while supplies last) at 410 Hegenberger Road in Oakland.










How does the Pet Food Pantry operate?
Pet parents will drive into the parking lot and be directed forward to the ‘Check In’ tent.
At this tent, a volunteer will ask you for your name, zip code, and how many dogs and cats you own. From this tent, you will then be directed to pull forward to the ‘Pick Up’ tent where our volunteers will roll your bagged pet food forward to you on a cart for you to retrieve through your window, and then you will be directed to exit the parking lot.

Pet parents must stay in their cars and wear a mask while driving through our Pet Food Pantry.

I also need assistance obtaining veterinary care for my pet, what should I do?
Our Full Service Clinic offers financial assistance for pet parents experiencing unexpected veterinary concerns with their pet or needing spay/neuter services. To learn more about making an appointment and financial options, reach out to our Manager of Humane Advocacy at or (510) 563 – 4627

How do I donate to the Pet Food Pantry?

We are currently accepting in-kind donations Wednesdays – Sundays from 10:30 AM – 4:30 PM at our Oakland Adoption Center and Dublin Adoption Center in a safe, socially distanced, manner. In-kind donations can be placed in our donation bins located outside of the shelter entrance. We accept unopened dog and cat food in its original packaging that has not expired.
