No Empty Bowls Program

Circle of Friends Animal Shelter is dedicated to keeping pets in their homes. We know there have been times where an owner is struggling to make ends meet due to unexpected circumstances. We are also aware that during this difficult time dealing with COVID-19, it can be hard to provide for pets as well. We do not want pets and their companions to struggle. When unexpected circumstances like this happen, purchasing food for an animal can be a struggle because of the financial cost.

We are thankful for generous donors who provide some food each month for us to be able to assist community members of Grand Forks City and Grand Forks County with pet food during these times.  Please remember we rely on donations for this program and food may not always be available. If you are in need of assistance, please let us know at
