The Pet Food Pantry is a joint effort by RAA and Cats Unlimited that is held monthly at the Rockbridge Area Relief Association (RARA). 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. Check out our Events Calendar to find out when we’ll be at RARA. Email or text us your phone number if you’re interested in receiving a reminder text message about when we will be at RARA. 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.
In 2016, RAA distributed 10,467.12 pounds of supplemental pet food.
