The Humane Society of Richland County is happy to help our community with a free pet food pantry. The pantry will be held on the first Saturday of every month from 10am to 12 pm. During that time, we will be giving out free cat and dog food at the shelter. A driver’s license or other form of ID is required for pickup. You can only pick up for yourself and your animals. The amount of food given will depend on how much the shelter currently has. It will vary on a monthly basis, and we cannot guarantee certain brands, nor will we take requests. We can only allow people to pick up food up to six times per year. We keep a record of who has picked up food and after the sixth time, we will not be able to supply any more pet food until the following year. If the shelter has a surplus of food, we may hold additional food banks during the month. Check our Face Book page for updates.
