how you can help


The best place for any pet is in a loving home

STARelief is a group of volunteers dedicated to keeping pets and families together during hard financial times.  We do this by providing life-saving pet food, supplies, and veterinary care to families in need.  Our goal is to reduce the number of pets that are left behind or surrendered to local animal shelters, and to work toward a future where decisions about providing food or medical care for pets are never made on the basis of cost.

We provide assistance to:

Tank and best friend

  • Low income individuals and families
  • Physically and/or mentally impaired
  • U.S. Military members and their families
  • Homeless who own pets
  • Senior citizens and retirees on fixed income

STARelief shares a common passion for the love of animals and caring for families in need.
