Free SPCA pet food bank event scheduled in three locations

SPCA Monterey County is focused on keeping pets in their homes with their families during this difficult time. The SPCA offers free pet food every Wednesday and Saturday from 9 to 11 am at the SPCA.

Since the pandemic started, the SPCA’s free Pet Food Bank has helped over 4,000 pets stay with their loving families by offering free pet food for all types of pets. To date, we have given out over 43,000 pounds of pet food.

This month, in addition to our weekly SPCA food distributions, we will also offer free Pet Food Bank events in Castroville and Greenfield. The Pet Food Bank event in Castroville will take place at Our Lady of Refuge Catholic Church on Saturday, August 15 from 10 am to 11 am. Our Lady of Refuge Catholic Church is located at 11140 Preston Street. The Greenfield event will take place Saturday, August 22, from 10 to 11 am at Patriot Park. Patriot Park is located at 1351 Oak Ave in Greenfield. All food is first come, first served, and completely free thanks to our donors. The events are open to all pet owners in all cities.

If you need any type of pet food, please come to have at least two weeks of food safely loaded into your vehicle by SPCA team members.
