Rescue Allies Animal Food Pantry - Somerville

Our mission

Owner surrenders can account for as many as 30% of all animal intake in the US. This is often higher for smaller communities. Of these owner surrenders, these are the top reasons:

  • Behavioral issues

  • Finances

  • Housing

We are on a mission to keep animals in their loving homes and prevent unnecessary surrenders. Learn more about our services and how they help us achieve our mission.

The importance of free animal food

Most Americans live paycheck to paycheck. This means a single life event can devastate a family financially. In most cases involving animals, these animals are well cared for and deeply loved. However, when money is tight, people often make the devastating decision that they can no longer provide the quality of life they believe their animal deserves.

So they surrender.

Free food prevents these kinds of surrenders. We cover the animals in the home until the humans can get back on their feet. We keep families together.
