While the ARF Adoption Center is under construction, the Pet Food Pantry has moved to Petco at the Bridgehampton Commons at 2044 Montauk Hwy.

ARF has created a Pet Food Pantry 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.

The COVID-19 pandemic created a growing demand for such assistance. With unemployment at an all-time high over the past year and local families unsure of the future, 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 will offer free pet food through a monthly, drive-through pet food pantry at the ARF Adoption Center.

ARF will hold its next pet food drive on Saturday, October 16, from 12 to 3 PM at Petco at the Bridgehampton Commons. Only unopened food and treats for cats* and dogs (dry and wet) and treats will be accepted. Pet food drop off dates will be held monthly throughout the year. 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 from the Pet Food Pantry also on Saturday, October 16, from 12 to 3 PM. Pick up will available for any member of the local community, while supplies last. Recipients will only be asked how many cats and dogs are in the household in order to supply enough food until the next distribution date.
