Meals For Mutts is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in Webster, NY. Our goal is to reduce the number of animals surrendered to shelters and rescues by providing quality food to companion animals when their owners have fallen on hard times and are unable to provide food for them. It is our hope that by deferring the cost of feeding their pets, Meals For Mutts will help owners keep their pets where they belong - in their home.
Meals For Mutts is an all-volunteer organization. All activities are carried out by our volunteers. Food donated to and procured by Meals For Mutts is stored at a central storage and distribution location and will be accounted for and inventoried by MFM volunteers.
Our organization currently works with local rescues, animal welfare organizations and private citizens in Rochester, NY and surrounding areas. We accept referrals from specific not-for-profit organizations, as well as professional support services within this area. Additionally, private citizens who feel they need assistance can complete an application.
We rely solely on donations from businesses and individuals to survive. Since Meals For Mutts began delivering food in January of 2014, we have delivered over 7,000 pounds of dog food and approximately 650 pounds of cat food (yes we help our kitty friends too when we can). It is only through your generosity that we are able to provide much needed help to our community. If you’d like to help, please check out our Donate page!
For those seeking service, please understand: As a member of the animal welfare outreach community we cannot, in good faith, serve those whose pets are used for breeding purposes. It is the belief of Meals For Mutts that applicants who use their animals for profit (breeding/selling puppies) will not meet the requirements for our assistance.
We are always in need of food and supplies. If you wish to donate please review our wish list for the latest information.
