Ranger’s Pantry Pet Food Bank is a project of the Community Resources Division of the City of Fayetteville designed to keep struggling families and their pets together by providing pet food to qualifying applicants.
We are excited to share that the program surpassed a major milestone in the month of October—donating more than 150,000 pounds of pet food since their inception to help the homeless, as well as low- to moderate-income residents, provide for the pets they love.
Founded in 2010, Ranger’s Pet Food Pantry has assisted more than 3,000 dogs, cats, and their families over the past 8 years.
To qualify for Ranger’s Pantry, prospective applicants must meet the following criteria:
- Live within the Fayetteville City limits
- Fall within the low-to-moderate income guidelines (PDF) provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
- Prospective applicants must provide current identification and proof of Fayetteville residency for each application. Subsequent applications also require proof of spay/neuter for each pet. Applications must be filled out in the Community Resources office located in downtown Fayetteville.
If you would like to donate to Ranger’s Pantry, individuals may drop off dog or cat food donations to the Community Resources Division office located at 125 W. Mountain St, or at any one of the City of Fayetteville Fire Stations. Monetary donations are also accepted, and 100% of proceeds are used in the purchase of food.
