The Friends of the Norfolk Animal Care Center (FNACC) started the Pet Pantry in July 2011. It is physically located at the Norfolk Animal Care Center shelter and available to community members seven days a week, with no appointment or verification needed. Because we know that pets are a part of the family, we are dedicated to providing temporary assistance to pet owners facing hardship by helping to keep their pets in their homes. Pet owners facing hardship and financial challenges may choose between feeding their families or pets. Some owners faced with this difficult decision must give up their animal companions. We aim to make it possible for pets to stay in a loving home together by providing the essential nutrition every pet needs.
Mobile Pet Food Pantry
With help from the Friends of Norfolk Animal Care Center and Norfolk Public Library, FNACC’s Pet Pantry has gone mobile! On the second Saturday monthly, NACC’s Waggin’ Wheels will bring the mobile pet pantry into our communities to a different Norfolk Public Library anchor branch to provide free pet food, resources, and engagement opportunities.
