Helping Families in Need: RSPCA Expands Pet Food Bank Scheme

Helping Families in Need: RSPCA Expands Pet Food Bank Scheme

As the cost of living crisis continues to impact families across the UK, many are finding it increasingly difficult to afford essentials, including pet food. In response to this pressing issue, the RSPCA has announced plans to expand its pet food bank scheme, marking its 200th birthday year.

The initiative, which currently operates with 140 food banks in northern England, will now extend its reach nationwide. It not only provides food but also offers veterinary vouchers for urgent care.

Alison Fletcher, RSPCA national food bank coordinator, highlighted the importance of this initiative, stating, “Sadly, our rescuers often come across people who are struggling to feed themselves and will actually go without food themselves so they can afford to feed their pets. Pets offer major comfort to loving owners in challenging times, and they shouldn’t feel forced to give them up—as they are members of the family—so we are providing what many users describe as a ‘lifeline’.”

How You Can Access Support:

If you find yourself struggling to feed your pets, you can easily locate your nearest pet food bank by searching here:

The RSPCA is continuously updating the map with details of pet food banks as they come on board. However, if you are unable to find a pet food bank in your area, we recommend reaching out to your local food bank, council, or RSPCA branch for assistance.

Join us in spreading the word about this vital resource. 

Together, we can ensure that no pet goes hungry during these challenging times.
