Based in South Wales
The Pet foodbank service currently covers Cardiff, Newport, Caerphilly, Swansea, Gilfach Goch, Merthyr and Pontypridd. We are continually extending this coverage.

· Victims of abuse
· People in a financial crisis or poverty
· Victims of natural disasters
· Furloughed workers
· People waiting for universal credit

To break the poverty cycle of people sharing their human food with their pets, causing the owners to suffer from malnutrition.
Stopping the mental anguish of being unable to afford to feed their pet or worse having to give up their companion to a shelter.

Thank you to everyone who has helped us to provide all of these meals and pet items, your amazing!
Please help us keep as many cats and dogs out of shelters as we can during the cost of living crisis, Pets belong at home where they are loved. Poverty shouldn't mean having to give up family members. We desperately need a warehouse space to be able to sort and temporally store pet food and pet items. A place to allow us to have volunteers come in and help out. Currently, we are lucky enough to have more pet food coming in than we can process.
The need for our service has always been great but this year it has exploded due to Covid-19 and the cost of living crisis, we try and help as many people and pets as we can, but without your help to expand into a warehouse that is large enough to cope with these demands, we will have to say no to people and pets in need.
In 2021 we provided 40,580 pet meals with just 10 pet food outlets, we estimate that we need a further 10 outlets to provide a more easily accessible service to everybody in South Wales and that’s a lot of food to process, but we have the will and the passion we just need the space. You never know when you or somebody you care about might need us and every penny counts.
Please donate if you can, but we know times are hard so a share means just as much as a donation to us. We are going to apply for grants in the meantime, but every penny given shows the grantors just how much the public is behind us and supports us. Thank you X
