Judith Caplan Phillips Pet Pantry Program

The Michigan Humane Society’s Judith Caplan Phillips Pet Pantry program assists thousands of families in need in the metro Detroit area. Thanks to our partners at Purina, Greater Good, Rescue Bank and Forgotten Harvest, we’re able to provide dog and cat food at no charge to owned pets in an effort to keep animals in their current homes.

How to Donate Pet Food
The Judith Caplan Phillips Pet Pantry program is dependent on the generosity of the public and important sponsors. Bags and cans of dog or cat food can be donated at any of Michigan Humane Society’s locations during regular adoption hours.

Unopened bags are preferred; opened bags will be accepted as long as the food is in its original manufacturer packaging and includes the expiration date. Corporate, school, or community-based food drives are encouraged and greatly appreciated. For large donations, please call 1-866-MHUMANE (866-648-6263) to schedule a delivery.
