The National Pet Food Distribution Program for Animal Rescue Groups and Organizations
Each year, millions of pounds of nutritious pet food are donated by brand name manufacturers for delivery by Rescue Bank® to pre-qualified animal welfare non-profits throughout America. Our partnership with The Greater Good and their TheAnimalescueSite.com supports freight-paid deliveries to smaller, less visible non-profits that have limited access to resources.
Nutritious pet food is donated when it is nearing the ‘best buy’ date, has minor packaging defects or is being re-branded. Animal rescue groups use the savings from their food budget for more spay/neuter and vet services – increasing adoptions of healthier pets.
Rescue Bank® operates on the national food bank model, accepting food donations from any manufacturer, distributor or retailer. Suppliers such as Pedigree, Nutro, Royal Canin, Purina, DelMonte, Wellness and PupChips notify us that product is available.
Rescue Bank® schedules and pays for the freight to deliver the donation to a regional distribution center where it is picked up by pre-qualified non-profit groups.
With millions of pets in need throughout the country, Rescue Bank® is a reliable partner for converting excess product into goodwill for the donor.
Rescue Bank® is a valued partner for both suppliers and the animal rescue and foster organizations across America. In a limited capacity, we are also support selected community-based pet food banks and pantries to help families keep pets that otherwise might be surrendered to a local shelter.

Who We Are
Rescue Bank® is a non-profit organization committed to supporting the animal rescue and rehabilitation community with much-needed supplies and services.
Operating on the “food bank” model, Rescue Bank® is a collection and redistribution point for surplus pet supplies and donations. We are working to relieve area rescue groups and fosters of one of their most difficult tasks- identifying and soliciting donors for the everyday supplies needed to keep their animals healthy.
We are also providing a much-needed service to potential donors- verification. Most small groups have a difficult time presenting up-to-date credentials, seriously diminishing their chances of corporate or foundation donations. Rescue Bank® will maintain current information on rescue groups to assure donors that their contributions are actually supporting legitimate, successful animal welfare activities.
Please take a few minutes to review our mission statement, policies and procedures. Maintaining a vital, effective animal rescue and rehabilitation community is difficult, important work. We hope you’ll support- and use- the services we offer.
