The Hawaiian Humane Society’s Pet Food Bank program provides temporary assistance to pet owners struggling to feed their animals and runs solely via generous donations from the community, pet stores and the Hawaii Food Bank. Pet food is distributed when donations are available and is not intended to be the sole means of care.
Hawaiian Humane cannot guarantee a 30-day supply and applicants may be limited to pickups 1x per month, dependent on availability. Please bring your own reusable bag to take pet food home to your pets.
Location: Hawaiian Humane Admissions Center
Hours: Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays – 10 am to 1 pm
