PetSmart Charities committed $10 million to combating pet food insecurity, beginning in 2021, with an ongoing partnership with Feeding America

Pet food donated by PetSmart Charities throughout 2021 will help enable the Feeding America network of food distribution partners across the country and will help directly impact the quality of life for pets currently in homes affected by financial hardship.

PetSmart Charities has also kicked off its donation drive in PetSmart stores and online at to encourage customer donations to help combat food insecurity and other needs to further the goal of keeping people and pets together.

"Food insecurity is at an all-time high for families due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and historically we've seen many stories about pet parents in need who sacrifice to feed their pets before they feed themselves," said Aimee Gilbreath, president at PetSmart Charities. "We are proud to make this commitment to provide much-needed pet food to families across the U.S., ultimately helping keep pets and people together during this challenging time."
