In emergency situations, one of the first aspects that can be overlooked is pet care.  There is assistance out there.  The following webistes are evolving, but show sites around the state that can provide pet food to individuals that can't get it otherwise:

Area Agencies on Aging provide local services, act as advocates, and generally assist older citizens to remain active in their communities. We operate under program guidance from the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, with County, State and Federal funding.

The purpose of the Area Agency on Aging is to plan and coordinate the provision of services to the OLDER ADULTS in Northampton County.
These services, delivered directly, purchase of service from a community agency, or by cooperative agreement, are designed to enhance the independence and dignity of older adults, and to provide protection as well.

The Area Agency on Aging serves residents of Northampton County who are 60 years of age or older. No distinction is made on the basis of race, color, nationality, creed, sex or income. The Area Agency on Aging is an Affirmative Action Employer and Provider.
