Mission Statement

Food FUR All by SPARC Our mission is to create a pet food pantry that will ensure no pet in Ventura County ever be starved, abandoned or surrendered to an animal shelter because of financial struggles by providing FREE FOOD FUR ALL. Commitment, as opposed to financial wealth or the lack thereof, is one of the determining qualities of a responsible pet parent. People with commitment to their pets are the ones who will receive the resources we offer. Food FUR All relies on community members to donate, along with a few donors that continue to offer financial support. We accept dry and wet food for dogs and cats, as well as cat litter, litter scoops, and other miscellaneous accessories like leashes. Funds that are raised through this cause help to purchase food for those who need it, as well as spay and neuter procedures for pets whose families qualify for subsidized assistance by the pantry.


The Santa Paula Animal Rescue Center (SPARC) is a no kill 501(c)(3) charitable organization providing animal services to the City of Santa Paula. As the municipal shelter it is our mission to build a humane community by cultivating kindness and compassion for people and their pets through progressive programs and services like low-cost spay/neuter and veterinary care, proactive adoptions and lost pet
redemption, emergency boarding and medical care, a pet food bank and wellness supplies, and a robust foster care and volunteer network.
