What is Advocates 4 Animals Pet Food Pantry (A4A Pet Pantry)? 

We are a 501c3 non-profit pet food pantry and rescue based in Jefferson County.  Our primary focus is to ensure those in our community who need assistance with feeding their dogs and cats receive the help they need, to prevent their animals from having to be relinquished.   
We also rescue dogs, primarily pregnant moms, who have been abandoned to ensure they have a safe, comfortable and loving place to have their babies.  We then have mom and babies brought up to date on shots, spayed/neutered, micro-chipped and then we adopt them to loving homes where they can live a healthy, happy and prosperous life.
