4 Paws Cupboard, LLC

WHO ARE WE?

4 Paws Cupboard of Virginia Beach is a not-for-profit* organization created to help people feed their entire family-  including their pet dog or cat.  We partner with local church food pantries and shelters that are currently offering free meals to people in need. 4 Paws Cupboard will supplement the efforts of these existing distribution sites by providing donated pet food so a beloved furry family member has a chance to enjoy a full belly, too!


ALL OF US CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Our volunteers are organizing collection drives throughout Virginia Beach.  Would you please consider picking up a few extra cans or small bags of Made in America dog or cat food next time you are at the pet or grocery store?  We will gladly take any brand of food, but if you are a pet owner, we ask that you consider donating the same quality brand you feed your own pet.  (Please, no opened or expired food).  100% of the food collected will be redistributed throughout the area.   Please check out our "Accountability" page on this website to see our detailed efforts on the amount of food that has been collected and donated to date.


A DIFFERENT KIND OF CHARITY

Times are tough and every penny counts.  4 Paws Cupboard values your support which is why the organization is not accepting any monetary donations.  Your donation of American-Made pet food will help the most.  If you are willing to host a collection party/event to help our organization acquire more food, we will gladly ensure your efforts make a difference in the lives of those who are struggling to feed their families.  If you would like to purchase pet store gift cards, 100% of your donation will go to pet owners to purchase pet food, additional supplies and or pet care (such as PetsMart).  


LOCAL PARTNERSHIPS TO REACH THOSE IN NEED

In addition to working with churches and other non-profit organizations that are feeding meals to families in need, 4 Paws Cupboard is partnering with local animal rescue groups and veterinarians who are also helping those who might be struggling to take care of their pets.


HOW ELSE CAN I HELP?

Would you consider organizing a one-day collection at your workplace? How about hosting your next dinner party or social function on behalf of  4 Paws Cupboard and asking your guests to bring store-bought pet food.  Our organization will provide flyers and signs to help you promote your event.  We will even pick up any food you collected and distribute it to those in need.  We also need volunteers who willing to offer assistance in pickup and delivery of donated food.  Any involvement is greatly appreciated!  Please see our "Get Involved" page for more details on how to volunteer.


*A "Not-for-profit" organization is not the same as a non-profit organization (501c3) which means your donations to 4 Paws Cupboard cannot receipted for tax purposes.
