Biggie & Frank's Pet Food Bank

Why a pet festival? 

Biggie & Frank's Pet Food Bank is a community service run 100% by volunteer and donations. We receive no corporate or government funding. 

We run a mobile pet food bank that goes to certain areas on certain days and distributes pet food to people in need. Our mandate is to keep pets at home where they belong. 

We work hard so that pets aren't surrendered to shelters and rescues because their people are facing financial hardship. 

Please visit the Facebook Page  for mobile pet food bank schedules and latest updates or to contact them. 

A portion of funds raised helps support the pet food bank keeping pets fed and home where they belong!  Thank you for your support of the festival. 

Yes, they take open bags of dry pet food. If your pet has transitioned to a new food they are happy to take donations. There are several donation locations set up all around Durham Region. 

SHOP – Meet with our amazing vendors who have products and services to satisfy every budget and taste. Lots of ways to spoil your pets and also pick up everyday essentials. 

REST– Yes, it will be hot. It's August. We will have cooling splash pools and lots of water available to cool off those hot dogs! Lots of space to stretch out and take a break.
