A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to prevent family PETS from going hungry during periods of temporary, unforeseen financial hardship
Helping Owners with Pet Expenses [HOPE] is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping feed family pets in our community whose owners are experiencing temporary, unforeseen financial hardship. HOPE provides one-time pet food assistance to qualified, responsible pet owners who are experiencing a short-term inability to provide food.
The HOPE Pet Food Pantry is operated by a group of volunteer pet lovers - contact us if you would like to volunteer.
HOPE assists qualified clients in Grand Traverse County as the pet food supply in our pantry allows. HOPE encourages responsible pet ownership. We require that applicants' pets have been spayed or neutered (unless medically inappropriate), and that pets in the home are up to date on standard vaccinations. Pet owners seeking assistance must be approved via HOPE's application process (see the "Application" tab above) prior to receiving food. Pet Food Pantry hours are by appointment only.
HOPE has been aiding local pet families in the Grand Traverse County area for nearly twelve years. The organization has helped feed hundreds of companion animals who could otherwise have gone hungry. Instead these dogs, cats, birds, bunnies, rats, a lizard, and even a goat, received short-term assistance with providing nutritious food while their owners worked to recover financially. HOPE couldn't have helped feed these much-loved family pets without the support of people like you, the generous, caring people and businesses in our community - our HOPE Pet Partners.
Financial contributions are greatly appreciated, and used wisely and responsibly. HOPE is an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff. One hundred percent of all donations directly benefits pets in need. Financial gifts may be made via this webpage (see the "Donate" link below), or mailed to PO Box 184, Acme, MI 49610. Please call the Pet Food Pantry phone (231.590.8133) during normal business hours to schedule a pick-up of pet food and/or pet supply donations.
