VCA Charities Opens 32nd Pet Food Pantry in Nashville

By July 12, 2018 October 21st, 2020 Pet Food Pantry

VCA Charities, VCA Animal Hospitals, Hill’s Pet Nutrition, and the Southern Alliance for People and Animal Welfare (SAFPAW) teamed up to hold their first VCA Charities Pet Food Pantry food distribution event in Nashville on July 3, 2018.

The Pet Food Pantry program was created to provide nutritious meals to needy families to help keep their pets healthy and happy. By providing free meals, we can help many families hold onto the loving and comforting bond their pets provide. We are extremely honored and proud to expand our national Pet Food Pantry program in Tennessee.


In addition to opening the 32 Pet Food Pantry in Nashville, VCA Charities also made a $10,000 donation to the Southern Alliance for Peaople and Animal Welfare to allow them to continue their mission of providing pet food, supplies, and veterinary care free of charge to pet owners who are homeless or living at or below the poverty level.

The VCA Animal Hospital family would like to send special acknowledgment to our partner at Hill’s Pet Nutrition. Hill’s has been – and continues to be – an amazing partner to VCA Charities and the pet food pantry program.
