FCCAS COVID-19 Emergency Pet Food Bank donations, application process

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we here at Friends of the Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter realize times may be hard for many folks financially. We are teaming up with Neighborhood Pets Outreach Resource Center and the Cleveland APL to ensure that cat and dog owners have the means to feed and take care of their pets and most importantly, to keep their pets where they belong — at home — during this time.

The FCCAS Emergency Pet Food Bank will serve Cuyahoga County residents outside the city of Cleveland. 

Neighborhood Pets Outreach Resource Center and the Cleveland APL will provide assistance to those in the city of Cleveland. CLICK HERE for those resources. 

TO APPLY FOR HELP:
We are now providing no-contact delivery and pick-up services (strictly following state ‘stay-at-home’ order and health safety guidelines) for pet owners who qualify.

To apply, pet owners should:

1.) Call or text our hotline at 216-706-9363 to speak with a volunteer, who will guide them through the application process.

2.) Download the food bank application by CLICKING HERE, fill it out and email it to help@fccas.org. A member of our volunteer bank will then contact you.

To DONATE to the FCCAS Emergency Pet Food Bank:
We need YOUR help! FCCAS is accepting money donations to purchasing food to stock our pantry. We would be grateful for donations of funds through PayPal, Facebook or through the mail so we can purchase the food directly and better help the community adhere to the ‘stay-at-home’ order.

Donate through PayPal: paypal.me/fccasdonations
Donate through Facebook fundraiser: https://bit.ly/2WSC7iO

Mail donations:
C/O CCAS
9500 Sweet Valley Drive
Valley View, Ohio 44125

We will also gladly accept donations of dog AND cat food, wet and dry, purchased through sites like Amazon and Chewy, but we prefer money donations so bulk purchases can be made more quickly.

You can find the Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter’s Amazon Wish List here. Please shop through Amazon Smile, and choose Friends of the Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter as your charity! A portion of your purchase will be donated right back to FCCAS.

**All donations are tax-deductible**

TO CONTACT US:
Call our emergency pantry hotline at 216-706-9363 or email us at help@fccas.org with any questions.

Thank you so much for your support during this uncertain time. Together, we will all get through this — with our pets!
