Feeding Pets, Supporting Families

At Tullahoma Animal Shelter, we're more than just a shelter. We are an integral part of a community of pet lovers, and we understand that sometimes, a little help can make a big difference. We know that caring for a pet is a responsibility that goes beyond love and companionship - it also includes meeting their essential needs, like food.

That's why we proudly offer our Community Dog Food Pantry. Our pantry is stocked with dog food to support families in need, ensuring that no pet goes hungry in our community.

To access this support, you can contact us either by phone or email to verify if we currently have food in the pantry. Once confirmed, you can pick up the food from our pantry at your convenience. Our pantry hours are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10 AM to 2 PM.
