Pet food to pets and feral cats throughout Northern Ireland

Pet Food Bank:

This scheme provides free pet food to domestic pet owners in financial distress enabling them to keep their pet during rough times and not give them up when they need them most. We will endeavour to provide a supply of free pet food, for a limited period, to people in financial hardship and in Covid-19 difficulty.


Project Wildcat:

There are pockets of feral communities and community cats being fed by people throughout Northern Ireland. This unique scheme provides ongoing pet food support to help them feed them. We provide shelters to keep them warm, safe and protected, provided there is somewhere safe and someone to care for them where they are.  To discontinue care and feeding to which these cats have grown accustomed to would put them in grave danger. NB We do not trap, neuter, return or remove these cats.


NB. The supplies may be reduced at this time due to the increase in requests and will be dependent on funds available to cover. There are only a few volunteers delivering these supplies, so please bare with us! It is also not available to people who have got animals when already in financial difficulty or breeding, only to help them keep their pets during crisis times.

Both these schemes are free.
