Councilman Diego Bernal invites District 1 neighborhood associations to participate in the District 1 Pet Food Drive. Donated cans or bags of pet food will be given to senior citizens to assist them in feeding their pets.
The neighborhood association that donates the most pet food will win a brunch — sponsored by District 1 and held at the field office at 1310 Vance Jackson Road.
Food will be collected from now through Saturday, January 14th. On January 14th, Animal Care Services (ACS) will be at the D1 Field Office coordinating free pet licenses for District 1 residents, giving free rabies vaccines to the first 250 pets, and offering pet sterilization/neutering for $5.
Bark of Southtown has generously offered to be a collection point for donated food. Drop off your donations there (1032 S St Mary’s street), and we’ll get them over to the District 1 Field Office.
