Mission:
STARelief and Pet Assistance mission is to provide veterinary care, temporary homes, food and emergency shelter to pets whose caretakers are struggling with financial hardship.

Company Overview
STARelief is a group of volunteers dedicated to keeping pets & families together during hard financial times. We do this by providing free life saving pet food and veterinary care, as well as assisting families with spaying & neutering their pets.
Our goal is to lessen the amount of animals that are left behind or relinquished to local animal shelters. We donate pet food to low income, seniors, disabled & the homeless with pets.

In these difficult times, many families are faced with the hard decision of giving up their pet, because they can no longer properly care for them. This accounts for most of the 3-4 million pets that are destroyed in shelters each year in the United States. STAR hopes to decrease this burden on families by supplying food and supplies. Families should not have to choose between feeding themselves or their pets. We are one of the only organizations of our kind in the area & the need for our help keeps growing each week.

As animal shelters fill up and as families struggle, STAR Pet Food Pantry is committed to making a difference in our community in a whole new way. We service the Westchester, Fairfield and New Haven counties.

Description
