Pet Food Pantry Program (PFP)

In June 2010, VCA Charities launched the first location of the national Pet Food Pantry (PFP) program in Venice, CA. The PFP program was created to provide nutritious pet food meals to needy families to help keep their pets healthy and happy. The program has since expanded to 33 locations (21 States). The PFP program is co-sponsored by Hill’s Pet Nutrition. Hill’s provides the pet food to VCA as an in-kind donation. The annual cost to provide the pet food for each PFP location is approximately $5000. The VCA Charities Pet Food Pantry program provides over 40,000 lbs. of pet food or 300,000 meals to animals in need annually. Over the history of the PFP program, VCA Charities and Hill’s have provided over 2,000,000 meals to animals in need.
