The pet food pantries will be held every Sunday. Nov. 15 was the first distribution event.
The SPCA says the pandemic has been especially hard on pet parents and they want to help in anyway they can.
“Seventy-five percent of Nevada’s SPCA intake is owner surrendered animals, and last month, that number [went] up. So, we’ve seen first hand the need of this community when it comes to caring for their pets. Our goal is to always keep pets in loving homes,” said Lori Heeren, executive director at Nevada SPCA.
Pet owners can get a free supply of dog or cat food every Sunday at the SPCA shelter, located on Dewey Road. The drive-thru distribution events will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
