The Pet Food Pantry is held on the 2nd Saturday monthly at the Rockbridge Area Relief Association (RARA) from 10am to 12pm. The pantry provides supplemental pet food at no charge to help owners that are going through financial difficulties healthfully maintain their pets. At the same time, we provide education on the importance of spaying/neutering as well as providing resources to low-cost programs.
Using the Pet Food Pantry: To use the Pet Food Pantry, you must first apply and be approved to use the human food pantry at RARA (income limits apply). After that, you will automatically qualify to use the Pet Food Pantry. Since requests for pet food is high and growing, we must limit the amount of food we give to each family.
Donating: To donate to the Pet Food Pantry, simply drop off new, unopened cat or dog food at Lexington Tractor Supply. The Pet Food Pantry is stocked 100% with donations and grant funding.
RAA has distributed over 20 tons of supplemental pet food.
