Greater Androscoggin Humane Sociey’s Fetchin’ Food Pet Pantry is a service offered to the residents of our contracted towns (Auburn, Canton, Greene, Hebron, Leeds, Lewiston, Livermore, Minot, New Gloucester, Turner, Rumford, and Wales).
The Pet Pantry is open 9am to 11am every Tuesday unless it is a holiday. Inclement weather and harsh conditions may cause the Pet Pantry be postponed to a later day that week. This program is here to help the people and pets who live in our community. We run on donations and cannot guarantee what food/litter we will have on a weekly basis. This is a first come-first served program.
Additionally, as available, we also supply the following Food Pantries with dog and cat food:
- Kaydenz’ Kitchen in Lewiston
- St. Mary’s weekly pantry in Lewiston
- Poland Community Food Pantry
- Loaves and Fishes
- The Salvation Army
- Meals on Wheels
- 7th Day Adventist Church
- Leeds Church
