San Antonio Animal Care Services on Nov. 10 announced it is joining local nonprofit Daisy Cares to host a holiday pet food drive that will help both organizations support pet parents in need by filling their pet pantries over the holiday season.

According to a news release, bags of dog and puppy food are especially needed in addition to other new or gently used pet items.

All donations will be divided between the Daisy Cares pet food pantry and the SAACS Community Animal Support and Assistance program, which uses a case management approach to help pet parents in need with food, humane care support and veterinary resources.

The release said San Antonio-area residents can bring pet food donations through the end of November to Animal Care Services during regular business hours at 4710 Hwy. 151 and is open on weekdays from 1-7 p.m. and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. on weekends, except on city holidays. All donations are tax deductible.
