Spike’s Pet Food Pantry, No Pet Hungry – Now more than ever.

As part of the efforts of the Healthy Pets Initiative, Spike’s Pet Food Pantry is making sure that no pet in Berks or Lancaster County goes hungry or no one has to make the heartbreaking decision to give up their pet because they can’t provide food. We make pet food available to enrolled Berks and Lancaster County residents, regardless of income or economic status – if you need food for your pet, we are here to help!

Spike’s Pet Food Pantry serves pet owners by operating pantry locations at our Humane Pennsylvania Community Resource Center and Lancaster Campus.

Berks CART disaster response has also been activated to mobilize emergency pet food and supplies. Since Berks CART has been activated, we have delivered over 485,000 pounds of pet food to human food pantries, animal shelters and rescue groups within Pennsylvania, including: Berks, Lancaster, Chester, Dauphin, Northampton, Luzerne, Schuylkill, Lebanon, and Tioga counties.

For Berks County Residents

Spike’s Pet Pantry operates from our Humane Pennsylvania Community Resource Center (CRC) at 1350 Schuylkill Avenue, Reading, PA 19601 on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 2-6 PM. New enrollments are based on our ability to meet demand. Please email us directly at before coming in to confirm we are accepting new enrollments.
