Many of us might be homebound during the COVID-19 pandemic and spending more time than ever cuddling our fur babies! But they still gotta eat — which is why places doing pet food delivery are as important as ever right now.
If you need to buy pet food, pet supplies, or a new toy to keep occupied while you hang out at home, there are lots of options. Keep in mind that many businesses, big and small, are having delays in shipping due to backlogs and/or low inventory, so order well ahead so you don’t run out of pet food.
Here are places that’ll deliver pet food and other pet supplies right to your door:
1. Get pet food delivered in one to two days from Chewy.com.
Chewy has a huge inventory of pet everything. They’ll do free shipping for orders more than $49 (it’s $4.95 otherwise) and take 30% off your first autoship.
Chewy.com currently has a note on their website saying that delivery times are running longer than usual — potentially 5 to 8 days longer — so get your order in and call customer service at (800) 672-4399.
2. You can shop all of Petco’s products online.
Petco stores might still be open, but we don’t blame you for avoiding public spaces. You can find the same products Petco has in stores on their website. You’ll get 10% off if you pick your order up in store — it’ll be ready one to two hours after you pay online — or you can get free shipping and one- to two-day delivery on orders more than $35. If you set up a repeat delivery from Petco, you’ll get 35% off your first (eligible) order.
3. Get pet food and treats delivered from Petflow.com.
This website has food, toys, treats, and more for your four-legged friends. Shipping is free on orders $49 or more, and will take 30% off your first autoship order. The company also pledges to donate a bowl of food to a pet in need for every order shipped.
Note: Petflow has said that at this time deliveries are taking two to three days longer than usual.

4. Amazon is still filling orders on all pet supplies.
The mammoth machine that is Amazon just keeps on chugging along. You can find food, toys, treats, and other supplies for your dog, cat, snake, horse, guinea pig — whatever — on Amazon.
5. Get 20% off all pet food orders from 1800meds.com.
This pet supply website specializes in animal medicine and health products, but sells a wide range of products, including pet food. 1800meds will even suggest cheaper generic options for some products before you check out. Use code PETS20 to get an extra 20% off your online orders. Shipping is free on purchases $49 or more.
PetMeds, the official name of the company behind 1800meds.com, hasn’t released a statement about their response to the coronavirus yet, but you can call (800) 738-6337 if you have any questions or concerns about your order.
PRO TIP: As always, keep small businesses in mind. Check with your favorite local pet boutique to see if they’re still filling orders and/or doing delivery.
6. Get your pet food delivered tomorrow from Walmart.
If your pet food qualifies as a NextDay item and you place your order of $35 or more before 4 p.m. on a weekday, you can get your order delivered the very next day for free. Otherwise it’s $5.99. Also, if you sign up for autoship, you’ll save 20% on your first order and 5% on all future autoship orders.
If you’re thinking about ordering groceries to pick up from Walmart, it’s good to know that the company has said they’re working to fulfill as many orders as they can but are experiencing a high volume that may cause delays. Check with your local Walmart on grocery.walmart.com to see which time slots are available for grocery delivery and pickup.
Here is the company’s full COVID-19 statement.
