Welcome to the Peninsula Pet Pantry's website! The Peninsula Pet Pantry is a non-profit, all volunteer run organization that offers temporary pet food and supply assistance to pet caregivers facing financial hardship on the Virginia Peninsula. Our motto is simple: There's No Place Like Home. By offering our services to pet owners contending with economic difficulties, the Peninsula Pet Pantry is enabling pets to remain with their families-not surrendered to animal shelters and rescue groups. Our mission is two-fold: to reduce the rapidly rising rate of animal surrenders to local shelters and humane societies as well as foster an understanding of all aspects of responsible, joyful pet ownership.
