LFAC had once again delivered much needed pet food to area food pantries. Sometimes pet owners are unable to afford food for their pets.  Living for a Cause provides pet food distribution through our Pet Food Pantry Fund so beloved pets can stay with their loving families. We thank all our donors who make this possible by donating to our PET FOOD PANTRY FUND. Here are Ken (left) and Dave (right) from Connect church offering to help me bring in pet food for Rise Food Pantry in Hightstown, NJ. Here is Liz from the Presbyterian church in Allentown, NJ accepting pet food for their pantry.

Two Pet Oxygen Masks Delivered to Beach Haven Volunteer Fire Department

LFAC would like to thank our volunteer Eileen De Pano and her dog Annie for delivering two pet oxygen masks to the Beach Haven Volunteer Fire Department here in NJ. Chief Jorge Salazar, who is pictured with Annie, said how very happy his department was to get these life saving pet masks. These masks were made possible from a grant from the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation. This program is in memory of Michelle Delre.

Saving Pets’ Lives


Did you know that many first responder agencies do not have pet oxygen masks?

With your help, 92 pet oxygen masks were awarded to Living For a Cause, a non-profit organization in Milltown, New Jersey dedicated to making a difference in the lives of people, animals and the planet we share. The masks, made possible through Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation and the Michelle Delre Pet Oxygen Mask Memorial Fund, were distributed to various fire departments to resuscitate pets and treat smoke inhalation after a fire.

“Our firefighters are on the front lines dedicated to human rescue when confronted with a fire. To now have these pet oxygen masks in hand means that we can give the pets out there every fighting chance to survive.”
– Steve McConlogue, President of the Professional Firefighters Association of New Jersey
