Teamwork: How We Help Other Nonprofits

Here at VOCAL we believe in working together and supporting others. “Others” meaning people within our community as well as
other groups who are dedicated to helping Marion County pets have a better tomorrow.

We know we cannot see change in our community without teamwork and partnership. Chewy.com is leading the way by
partnering with us and supplying VOCAL each week with pet food and supplies from their Ocala distribution facility.

We have a team of amazing volunteers who sort and organize close to two semi-truck loads of product each week, and then
distribute the food to over 100 other nonprofit organizations and community pet owners in need.

We are truly humbled to have this continued relationship with Chewy, as we have been able to provide over 7 million pet meals
per year through their generosity.  Positive change is coming to pets in Marion County and we are proud to be on the forefront!

Our food bank is set up to service 501(c)3 rescues in our area. We have rescues who pick up from us weekly to feed the animals
in their care. We enjoy servicing and partnering with the rescues of Marion County as well as our neighboring counties.

If you would like to become a rescue partner at our food bank,  please email us at rescuefood@vocalforpets.org




Project Feed

Project FEED Marion County Pets is dedicated to provide Food, Education, Encouragement and Direction for those in our county.

We are ecstatic to be able to provide low-income families with pet food.

We know pets are in need in this county and helping keep them in their homes and out of shelters is one of our main goals.

Being able to supply food to families who need a little extra assistance is a game changer not only for this community, but the
animals in these homes.
