EDINBURG, Texas – The Palm Valley Animal Society announced the start of a pet food drive-thru to assist families struggling to feed their pets. The first drive-thru is set for Saturday, August 15 starting at 10 am at the PVAS Laurie P. Andrews Center.
The pantry’s drive-thru format requires participants to arrive in a vehicle, where they should remain while PVAS staff requests, from a 6-foot distance, information on the household pets then loads the pet food into the trunk or hatchback.
PVAS said quantities are limited and food will be available for cats and dogs while supplies last. They request that those interested drive safely and line up on Roegiers Road by the IDEA Edinburg school.
The drive-thru food pantry is part of the PVAS’ ongoing commitment to help prevent families from surrendering their beloved pets to a shelter for economic reasons, said the shelter.
PVAS also said their food pantry is donations-based and the highest need is for dry dog and cat food.
Donations are accepted at the Laurie P. Andrews location of PVAS at 2451 N Expressway 281 in Edinburg.
They are open daily from 11 am to 7 pm. Monetary donations can be made here.
