Community pet food drive gets underway

By Nancy Haines

Special to The PREVIEW

It’s that time of year again, when money gets tight in our community for some families.

Pagosa Feed is holding its third annual pet food drive. In years past, the food has been available during Thanksgiving week. This year, with the help of four church pantries, food will be made available through all the holidays to the end of the year.

Last year, we were able to help many families with a record high donation collection of over 400 pounds of food. Let’s work together to help those pets in need. Both wet and dry foods are needed and the churches would prefer small bags for the ease of distributing. Pets in our community play such an important role for our wonderful outdoor lifestyle as well as having a best friend to curl up by your feet. They thank you for your generous support.

Food will be made available starting Thanksgiving week at the food pantries of the following churches: St. Paul’s Episcopal, John Paul II Catholic, Community United Methodist and Restoration Fellowship. For more information, please call 731-4126.

Food drop off locations are: Pagosa Feed, 166 Bastille Drive and Waggin Tails, 97 Hopi Drive.
