On October 29, 2022, Cuddly hosted its second Dallas Pets are Family event to provide free resources to people and pets in need. The Dallas Animal Services (DAS) Pet Food Pantry and other local animal welfare organizations, including Spay Neuter Network and Dallas Pets Alive, also participated.
Despite the wet and cold weather, more than 500 families came out to receive food, vaccinations, training, and more. In the end, more than 40,000 pounds of food was distributed and more than 900 pets received necessary care - AMAZING!
Sadly, the demand for resources that help keep pets and people together is immense. Cuddly will host another Dallas Pets are Family event in early 2023.
In the meantime, if you want to help people and pets in need in our community, please consider a donation to the DAS Pet Food Pantry. The Pet Food Pantry works hand in hand with existing food pantries to ensure that families experiencing food insecurity also have access to pet food.
