This Tucson organization is committed to ensuring that animals do not remain unfeeded Pets



In addition to selling food and art, the Southern Arizona Animal Food Bank hopes to one day offer spay and neutral services and plans to open a mobile shooting clinic in the future. The organization opened a 6,000-square-meter facility at 6252 E. Speedway in mid-December.

With the help of volunteers, food can be delivered to those who don’t make it to the food bank, and they can provide beds, leashes, collars, toys, and sometimes donated gift certificates for neutering or neutering pets in clinics. Volunteers drive around their cars with food, leashes, and collars in case they run into someone who could use them.

“We’re always looking for volunteers. We have provided a huge service to this community that is bigger than you can imagine and that is required right now, ”said DeConcini. “Everyone who came in was so grateful, overwhelming.”

Help others in need

“Animals become part of your life and your family. Without mine I would be lost, “said Becky Janes, assistant manager of the grocery bank.” So it’s nice that we have the opportunity to help others. “

23-year-old Hannah Anolik went to the grocery bank in late January to pick up dog food for her 7-month-old Terrier mix puppy, Frida Mae.

“It was a really easy experience,” Anolik said on the phone. Frida Mae could be heard squeaking a dog toy in the background. “They could go with any dog ​​food I wanted, taste and brand, and that was really nice. And they threw in a few extra goodies. “

Patrick Murphy has an 11 year old mastiff named Bo, two 9 year old cats named Salt and Pepper and no transport. He would have had to make several bus trips to pick up animal feed from the Southern Arizona Animal Food Bank, so they delivered it to his home.
