Working To End The Stigma
Frequently Asked Questions
We currently do not have a qualification process and hope to never have one. Part of our goals are to keep the Animal Food Bank as low barrier as possible. please submit a Request For Help form found HERE>>
The Animal Food Bank depends greatly on volunteers and donations to operate. We rely heavily on the food and monetary donations of the community, our partnerships with local businesses to be drop-off locations, as well as our volunteers to handle requests for help coming in, and to pick up and drop off food and supplies where needed.
Once you have submitted your request for help, one of our volunteers will reach out to you. If we have food in stock, the volunteer will assign a delivery day. We currently deliver twice a week subject to the availability of volunteers, their time and their gas.
If we do not have the food or supplies in stock, we will put your request on our wait-list and be in contact as soon as donations have been received to fill the request.
We support animals in need with a special focus on the pets of homeless individuals, no-income and low-income individuals and families, and individuals and families who may just be going through some hard times financially.
We do our best to keep donations within the community there were donated in, ensuring there are not any unmet needs within that community (no wait list requests outstanding) before filling unmet needs elsewhere.
We do operate on the philosophy that the world is our community and while we can’t feed animals in far away lands, we will share food and supplies with closer communities in need where we can. For example, food donated in Winnipeg may be distributed in northern and remote communities where donations and supplies are sparse.
We accept donations of all types of pet food and supplies (dry, wet, open, unopened), as well as cat litter.. We are usually able to find a home for all kinds of items including pet beds, scratching points, carriers, bird cages, collars, leashes, harnesses and toys.

No. Part of our philosophy is creating a connection with the individuals and families who need us, promoting collaboration and awareness and ensuring we are doing our best to help the family as a unit. We also do monitor the frequency of donations provided to pets to ensure we are catching abuse of our resources. For these reasons you may not request food on behalf of someone else. Misuse of our program may result in future requests being declined.
