Pet Food Pantry

The ARL offers this supplemental service intended to help alleviate some of the costs associated with purchasing pet food for pet families.

The ARL Pet Food Pantry helps provide pet food for pet owners who are struggling to feed their pets due to financial difficulty. Owners are able to pick up food from ARL Animal Services, ARL Pet Help Center and/or food pantries across the Des Moines metro.
