No one should have to relinquish their pet because they cannot afford to feed that pet. We’re committed to providing pet food – and relief – to pet owners so that their pets will not go hungry. We maintain a high level of consistency delivering the same kind of food each month, so that pets have a stable diet, which is important to maintain good digestive health.

Since Operation Feed-A-Pet’s inception, Companion Animal Advocates has delivered 416,464 pounds of pet food to pets in need.  This equates to 1,041,160 bowls of food. We are currently providing pet food to the clients of the Center for Food Action in Saddle Brook, Hackensack, Ringwood and Mahwah as well as the Social Service Association of Ridgewood and Vicinity, Inc.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!  We are feeding 467 pets per month but we need more coupons!!!  Our goal each month is to have one coupon per bag but we run out quickly.  Help us make your contribution dollars go further by calling Purina at 1-800-778-7462 and requesting a $1 coupon for Purina products (Purina will accept a coupon request once every 4-6 weeks).  Upon receipt of the coupon, please mail it to Companion Animal Advocates, P.O. Box 61, Hillsdale NJ 07642. These valuable coupons significantly help us further our contributions to the Feed-A-Pet program.

Sign up to receive a monthly e-mail reminder to call Purina for the $1 coupon. Send an e-mail to Include your First and Last name, your town and state. We will add you to our coupon reminder list and send you a reminder around the beginning of each month to call for coupons.
