Families hard hit by tough economic times shouldn’t have to give up their pets. That’s just wrong.

The North Texas Food Bank wants to rectify this harsh reality with its new program called Food 4 Paws, funded through Communities Foundation of Texas.

It enables the large-scale distribution of dog and cat food to families and individuals seeking assistance through NTFB Member Agency food pantries.

Thus, families can allocate more resources for their own dietary needs.

It’s a worthwhile cause, which many large companies are eager to support. 

President of The Dallas Foundation, Mary Jalonick donated a large check to the cause Tuesday morning and Walmart gave more than four tons of dog food to Food 4 Paws.
