Pfeeding Pfriends Program
In times of uncertainty and hardship, our pets are a source of comfort and love.
Our mission is to help animals at the Pflugerville Animal Shelter, and that also means making sure families don't have to surrender their pets because of temporary financial insecurity.
Currently, intake at the Pflugerville Animal Shelter is closed. By helping families in the community now, we're hoping to curb a surge in animal intake at the shelter later. Animal calls have also been reduced to emergency situations only, so the shelter doesn't have the resources to send Animal Welfare Services unless under extreme circumstances.
In response to this, FOPAS is launching a program to provide and deliver pet food to families and individuals who have been financially affected due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The last thing we want is for a family to have to choose whether to feed themselves or their pet because of food cost.
Submissions for this new program start March 27, 2020. FOPAS can help provide a week's worth of food for up to three pets per household. In order to be considered, the applicant:
Must live in Pflugerville, TX.
Must be 18+ years of age.
Willing to have volunteers drop off food to your residence, which is in accordance with the current shelter-in-place ordinance in Travis County.
Applications are forwarded to FOPAS, who will evaluate submissions and determine eligibility on a case-by-case basis. Submissions do not not guarantee food delivery.
