The Ultimate Guide to Apartment Living with a Pet




Pet Food Pantry  

If you are experiencing financial hardship, please note ROAR maintains a pet food pantry to assist pet owners with pet food (dry and canned).  Please stop by ROAR during open hours to pick up supplies, or call the shelter ahead of time at 203-438-0158.  For cats…..due to the amount of inventory we maintain, we can only provide food for owned, domesticated cats.


The Jessa Fund

As part of our Community Outreach, ROAR established this fund to assist pet owners, who are experiencing financial hardships, and need assistance with various veterinary services (this may include vaccinations, spay/neuters, medications, etc). Please call our Executive Director at 203-438-0158 or email director.roar@gmail.com to discuss your pet’s medical situation and how ROAR may be able to help. If you would like to make a donation towards this fund, please select the Donate tab.
