APS Pet Food Assistance Program

We are all in this together. In order to fulfill our mission of providing care to animals in need and services to all pet owners in the community, Animal Protection Society of Durham has been gathering pet food to assist those facing financial hardship. APS has partnered with the Salvation Army to continue our community pet pantry at this time. Please see the contact information below to receive assistance with providing food for your pet.
Please note, you must live in Durham County. Pet food will be distributed to Durham County residents as available.

Safety Net

The Animal Protection Society of Durham at the Durham County Animal Shelter is an open-admission shelter. That means that we will take in any domesticated animal in Durham County. If you are a Durham County resident and can no longer keep your pet, we can take them.

Surrendering your pet is a big decision. Before you surrender, check out these resources and alternatives:
