Anyone who needs help feeding their pets can stop by the El Paso Animal Service Pet Food Pantry for pet food assistance.

El Paso's Pet Food Pantry is open for local pet owners who need help feeding their dogs or cats.

Over the last six months, families have been struggling to make ends meet. The looming novel coronavirus has greatly impacted many economically. As families are facing unemployment, lay-offs, and furloughs, El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank has seen a surge in families accessing the foodbank's services due to continued food insecurities.

Since March 19, El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank has distributed over 350,500 emergency food boxes to families in need in our area and continue to serve our community.

Pets too are part of this crisis, as pet owners are also struggling to feed their pets. El Paso Animal Services and El Pasoans Fighting Hunger understand the need and are offering a free pet food assistance via its pet food pantry.

For anyone who is in need of pet food can contact the El Pasoans Fighting Hunger pet resource team at 915-212-8735 or via email at pethelpline@elpasotexas.gov or reach out to El Paso Animal Services.

El Paso Animal Services is an open-admission shelter caring for 25,000 pets a year.
