One year ago, the shelter re-purposed its Re-Tail Store into a Pet Food Pantry to help residents needing assistance to feed their furry companions, and you supported us every step of the way:
- Supporters brought bags of cat and dog food to start us off and continued throughout the year.
- Sun City Pet Club members brought us multiple loads of pet food, while local businesses Wag Heaven and Pupology also donated food.
- Our fill-the trailer event last fall resulted in an enormous amount of food being donated.
Since last March, the shelter has received 176 requests for assistance, and most of the requests involved multi-pet households. Just think of all the animals we’ve helped this year!
We continue to get requests and need to replenish the pantry regularly. You can help us continue to assist local cats and dogs! Currently, our most needed items are bags of cat kibble, litter, small critter supplies, and puppy pads. (We have an excess of canned food.) Donations of unopened pet food and other items may be left in the donation bins at the shelter’s entrance, or ordered and shipped to Georgetown Animal Shelter, 110 W.L. Walden Drive, Georgetown, TX 78626.
