The Middle Tennessee Pet Food Bank is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity dedicated to helping animal rescue groups, animal shelters, and humane associations feed the animals in their care.

Your Tax deductible donation provides food to animals being cared for by rescue groups, animal shelters and humane associations in order to free up their ever-shrinking dollars for other necessitities such as spay and neuter programs, veterinary care, behavioral training and behavioral assessments of abused and neglected animals.  In some instances, the pet food bank will also work with rescue groups to temporarily provide food directly to individuals who would otherwise have no choice but to give up a beloved pet because of the inability to feed them.  For more information on The Middle Tennessee Pet Food Bank and it’s program please visit http://www.midtnpetfoodbank.org
