Pet food bank added to Flagler Humane Society’s services
FHS Food Bank, previously Kibbles Kitchen, is an outreach program in which qualified residents who need assistance for their pets are given pet food and sometimes supplies. Pet owners must apply and be approved for the program.
The qualifications for FHS Food Bank are:
- Must prove Flagler County residency.
- There is a limit of four animals. It can be a combination of dogs and cats, but only up to four.
- Total household income must be under $25,000. Applicants must provide proof.
- Pets must be spay or neutered.
- Pets must be up to date on vaccinations.
- You must be enrolled in two of any the following programs:

No new pets may be obtained while on the assistance program. Participants are helped for up to six months except for the senior program. Pet owners over the age of 75 yrs old who continue to qualify as low income may stay on the program. Food is distributed once per month, for all participants.
Flagler Humane Society is looking for volunteers to help carry on the program. Flagler Humane Society staff member Christina Miller will be overseeing the program but will be relying on volunteers to perform many of the duties required to keep the pet food bank going. Food must be picked up from donation sites. It must be inventoried, sorted and bagged. Phone calls must be made, clients approved and the food given out.
Anyone interested in helping with the program is asked to contact Flagler Humane Society 386-445-1814 ext 510 or firstname.lastname@example.org
