Puppy Food Bank
New Puppy Food Bank launches in San Antonio to support 'no kill' pet rescues
This month, San Antonio welcomes a new food bank specifically dedicated to serving pets in need. The Puppy Food Bank is a new 501(c) nonprofit organization working to provide food supplies to pet rescue organizations committed to being “no kill.”
The group focuses on helping pet rescue organizations face the massive influx of animals arriving daily at local shelters. According to the website, the virtual pet food bank works with "pet food distributors to ship pet food directly to shelters, organizations, and approved fosters."
While based locally in San Antonio, located at 7550 W. Interstate 10, the organization supports "no kill" pet rescues across the state, currently serving groups in San Antonio, Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, and Corpus Christi. The organization's first local partner, according to a media release, is God's Dogs Rescue, located just outside the Interstate 410 loop in Van Ormy, Texas.
To celebrate its launch, Puppy Food Bank will hold a special press conference outside its headquarters on Thursday, December 15 at 2 pm. Television personality John O'Hurley will join Puppy Food Bank founder Bob Wills and executive director Danielle Gunter for the announcement.
Perhaps best known as the host of the National Dog Show, O'Hurley is also an actor, comedian, and author. O’Hurley will serve as the official ambassador and spokesperson for the new organization.
More information on the new organization will be available online at puppyfoodbank.org.
