Pet Pantry

What is the Passaic County SPCA Pet Pantry?

The Passaic County SPCA Pet Pantry enables Passaic County residents facing economic hardship to keep their beloved pets at home, rather than surrendering them to a shelter by providing them with food, treats, and other pet items.

The pantry provides assistance to Passaic County residents who face choosing between feeding and caring for their pets and paying household bills or purchasing human food.  Residents who qualify can apply for monthly assistance.  Please note that we will only be able to provide assistance, not necessarily enough food to last an entire month for your pet/pets.


When is it open and where is it located?

Opening day will be Saturday, May 4, 2019.

The pantry is open the first Saturday of each month from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

It is located at PCSPCA headquarters at 794 Lafayette Avenue, Hawthorne, NJ 07506.

Please note that parking is available but limited.


Who Qualifies?

To qualify for the Passaic County Pet Pantry, residents must provide a valid photo ID and have proof of:

  • Spay/neuter of your pet (or willing to spay/neuter)
  • Passaic County residency (utility bill)
  • Income (pay stub or tax return)


Do you accept donations of food and other goods?

The Passaic County SPCA Pet Pantry accepts donations of new, unused dry dog food, wet dog and cat food, dry cat food, cat litter and some other supplies like leashes, litter scoops, etc.

Funds raised also will go towards purchasing food to keep the pantry stocked.
