Animal Services and Care Center provides pet food pantry

Citrus County Animal Services and Care Center believes the human-animal bond should not be broken due to financial hardships; therefore, we offer assistance through our Pet Food Pantry to help pet owners continue to care of their furry family members.

The Care Center relies on donations of unopened bags of pet food, treats and canned food to be able to provide this service to the residents of Citrus County. Through these donations, we also provide pet food to programs such as Meals On Wheels and Community Food Bank – Citrus County.

If you are in need of assistance, please call the shelter at 352-746-8400 to set an appointment for pet food pick up.
