Dedicated in loving memory of our dear friend, Darcy Miller Lashinsky, in recognition of her compassion and boundless love of everyone, animals and people alike.


The Darcy Lashinsky Memorial Pet Food Bank is made possible by the generous donations of both individuals and companies, allowing many families to afford to keep their pets rather than make the difficult and heartbreaking decision to rehome them.



Our drive-through food bank is located at 213 Oceola Avenue Nashville, TN 37209, open 1:00- 3:00 pm every Wednesday.


Davidson County residents qualifying for services may receive supplemental pet food and supplies once per month.  To qualify, pet owners must bring:


  • Proof of Davidson County residency.
  • Proof of government assistance (food stamps, social security, disability, WIC, medicaid, section 8 housing, or reduced lunch)
  • Proof of spay/neuter for each animal in the household.
  • First-time customers must complete an application (click here to download) along with above documents.


Please note: Because this program is funded by donations, distribution amounts cannot be guaranteed.

In-kind donations are always appreciated and can be donated to our shelter via our Amazon Wishlist. When purchasing dry dog food, please donate bags no bigger than 3-5 lbs to ensure equal distrubtion among participants. Monetary or in-kind donations specifically designated to the Darcy Lashinsky Memorial Pet Food Bank are always appreciated, as we hope to continue to serve pet owners in Middle Tennessee and promote the humane treatment of animals through this special program. To make a donation to support this program simply designate the Darcy Lashinsky Memorial Pet Food Bank on our donation page.
