SAN ANTONIO (July 18, 2018) - It’s a program aimed at helping local pet owners struggling to feed their companion animals in these tough economic times. Now, the Animal Care Services’ Pet Pantry is running low on supplies and the shelter is in desperate need of donations. Run solely on community donations, the ACS Pet Pantry is only open as supplies are available and dry pet food as well as cat litter is urgently needed right now to continue operation. Donations of pet food or other new and gently used pet items can be made at any time during regular business hours-Monday to Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and weekends from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The shelter is located at 4710 State Highway 151 near the San Antonio Food Bank. City residents who want to be notified of urgent pleas for supplies, fosters, and other ACS needs can sign up for the new “Furst Responder Team” at: https://goo.gl/forms/RkjkhQjndUPMXOB72. Local businesses or civic organizations can also support the Pet Pantry through the Animal Care Services Pay It Furward Program which pairs philanthropy and education. Residents can find out more by contacting acseducation@sanantonio.gov.
