Alexandria, VA – Pets are family too. During this difficult time, there are local resources to help pet owners.

The Animal Welfare League of Alexandria (AWLA) can assist pet owners in need. To date, the organization has provided over 5,000 pounds of pet supplies to residents. The Community Pet Pantry also supplies wet and dry food, along with other items for our furry friends. Feel free to contact the AWLA to discuss the supplies needed for your pet. They can be reached at community@alexandriaanimals.org or 703.746.5508. Pickup and delivery are offered.

For seniors who cannot leave home, the AniMeals on Wheels program, a partnership between the AWLA and Senior Services of Alexandria, provides monthly deliveries of pet supplies. To find out eligibility requirements, call Senior Services of Alexandria at 703-836-4414, ext. 113.
