Rescue Village believes that tight financial times should not break the bonds of love and companionship between people and their companion animals. That's why we recently started a public pet food pantry to assist families who have fallen on hard times and are struggling to provide food for their pet.

Cat and dog food will be available on a first-come, first-served basis to anyone who expresses a need. Proof of eligibility is not required. This pantry is donation-driven and therefore there may be times that we will not have enough donations to meet your needs. We cannot guarantee that food is always available or that you will have your choice of pet food brands.

15463 Chillicothe Road, Russell Township

We ask that you please contact us by emailing or calling 440-338-4819 ext. 13 to find out if we have donated food prior to making your trip to the shelter. Food pick up is generally available Fridays from 10 AM - 12 PM at our intake entrance but arrangements MUST be made in advance to be sure we have donated food available.

This program is intended to TEMPORARILY supplement your monthly supply of pet food, not be the permanent sole source of food for your pets. We want to be able to help as many pets and their families as possible.

NOTE: Please do not bring your pets to Rescue Village. Items received through this program cannot be sold. This program is not meant to feed stray animals or feral cats. If you are a feral colony caretaker, please learn more about our TNR (Trap, Spay/Neuter, Return) Program by clicking here.
