San Diego Humane Society
Pet families who need extra help during the COVID-19 pandemic can turn to us.
Through our Community Pet Pantry, anyone can visit our campus locations in El Cajon, Escondido, Oceanside and San Diego between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday, to pick up a bag of dog or cat food as well as other supplies as available.
No appointment is needed for this service.
(On a regular basis, we provide supplemental dry food for low-income pet families in need, with proof of Medi-Cal, EBT/CalFresh, SSI, etc.)
See the website for distribution schedule.
