Kitten Supplies for Pet Pantry Critically Low

The Pensacola Humane Society’s Pet Pantry is in dire need of donations, especially for kittens. Kitten season is in full swing, the demand is high, and the pantry is critically low on essential kitten supplies, such as kitten food, kitten formula, litter, bedding and other items.

The Pet Pantry provides dog and cat food, litter, and treats at no cost to pet owners who come to the shelter and present an acceptable form of identification, such as a driver’s license.

The Pet Pantry is open 10 am – 4 pm seven days a week at 5 Q Street, Pensacola 32505.
