King's Community Kitchen

Providing low-income pet owners with food for their dogs and cats in times of financial difficulty.

King's Kitchen is open twice per month:

• Second Wednesday from 2:00pm-4:00pm

• Last Saturday of each month from 9:00am-11:00am

Saving lives while serving community

By giving out dog and cat food, we can save lives and keep animals in their own homes. GHHS also donates food to Helping Animals Without Shelter (HAWS), Spay/Neuter Action Project (SNAP) North Alabama Animal Warriors, and multiple other rescues/shelters, local organizations and community partners, to reach as many pet owners as possible.

King’s Kitchen rapidly expanded in 2021-2022 from 200 clients to 304 clients and, with your support, provided 40,081 pounds of pet food to homes in need in 2022. (We distributed 4,495 pounds of food in January 2022 alone!)

King’s Kitchen also supports GHHS’ state-wide initiative “Road to Rescue” and permits GHHS volunteers to distribute pet food to shelters in need across Alabama once a year. Currently we are operating King’s Kitchen out of our multi-use Annex but have outgrown the space. We are seeking community partnerships and sponsorships that will allow us to build a dedicated King’s Kitchen building and provide many more opportunities to help the Greater Huntsville region.

Who is King?

The fund is named after King (pictured), who was surrendered to GHHS extremely emaciated.

His owners could not afford to feed him. They didn’t want to give him up. King was surrendered, returned to normal weight and now lives in his forever home.

We never want to see another animal go hungry.

You can help!

Donate Pet Food!

King’s Kitchen is the largest pet food bank in Alabama and we need your help to save the animals. We accept all brands, and even open bags. Please consider donating food to help those animals in need.

You can drop off donations at our shelter (Monday-Saturday, 10am-4:00pm), or call us for large pick-ups. Thank you for helping the animals!
