Pet Community Support

This is our community. And so we ask a lot - of our customers and ourselves. Whether it’s fostering needy pets, fundraising for good causes, or stepping up when the worst happens, we are all here for our shared pet community.

20/20 Coupon Program

We love win/wins. And the 20/20 is just that. Our 315+ nonprofit partners hand out this special coupon to pet parents that adopt, license their pet, or get their pet spayed/neutered. The pet parents receive 20% off their purchase, and Pet Food Express donates $20 back to the organization. In 2023, we donated $310,200 back to our partners through this program alone!

Friends Program

Friends by Pet Food Express is a way to donate money to a rescue or shelter, at no additional cost to customers. Every time customers shop online at Pet Food Express, via the rescue or shelter’s custom link, the organization will get a donation equaling to 4% of that purchase. It’s simple - and it adds up.

Rescue Reserves

Want to foster a pet? We make it easy! Designed to work with you, the Rescue Reserves program allows you to easily enroll in our rescue partners’ California database, matching needy pets with foster homes. The cost of supplies and medical care are taken care of by the rescue agencies; you supply the snuggles! Sign Up Today
