ARF now collects cat and dog food to assist families with pets in need in our community. Pets are an integral part of the family unit, especially in times of crisis and ARF is committed to providing cat and dog food to those who need it.

Over the past few years there has been a growing demand for such assistance. ARF realized that feeding the family pet(s) could easily become a financial burden for many. In an effort to keep pets in their homes ARF now offer free pet food through our local pet food pantries.

ARF now holds its pet food drives on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 11 AM to 4 PM at the Adoption Center. Only unopened food and treats for cats* and dogs (dry and wet) will be accepted. Please drop off pet food at the ARF Adoption Van on the grounds. ARF friends and supporters, as well as other community members are encouraged to donate to their neighbors that are less fortunate.

Families in need are encouraged to pick up pet food from the East Hampton Pet Food Pantry, 159 Pantigo Road, East Hampton on Tuesdays from, 1-6 PM at or at Heart of the Hamptons Food Pantry, 168 Hill Street, Southampton Village on Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 AM-12 PM, or by appointment.

Please contact the food pantries prior to visiting as qualifiers might be required to participate.

For more information please contact Jake Kommer at jake@arfhamptons.org.
