Judith Caplan Phillips Pet Food Program

Michigan Humane’s Judith Caplan Phillips Pet Food Program assists thousands of families in need in the metro Detroit area. Thanks to our partners at Purina, Greater Good Rescue Bank and Forgotten Harvest, we’re able to provide dog and cat food at no charge to owned pets in an effort to keep animals in their current homes.

How to Qualify 

If you need temporary assistance in providing food for your pets, you can reach us at 313-324-8512 or visit the Judith Caplan Phillips Pet Food Program on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m.-noon, located at:

How to Donate Pet Food 

The Judith Caplan Phillips Pet Food Program is dependent on the generosity of the public and important sponsors. Bags and cans of dog or cat food can be donated at any of Michigan Humane’s locations during regular adoption hours. 

Unopened bags are preferred; opened bags will be accepted as long as the food is in its original manufacturer packaging and includes the expiration date. Corporate, school, or community-based food drives are encouraged and greatly appreciated. For large donations, please call 1-866-MHUMANE (866-648-6263) to schedule a delivery.
