SAN ANTONIOPuppy Food Bank is a new virtual non-profit dedicated to providing food supplies to ‘no kill’ pet rescue organizations across Texas. (The website is expected to be fully online in January).

The organization’s home base will be in San Antonio, but they will work with service distributors in Dallas, Austin, and Corpus Christi.

With many shelters facing challenges due to the overwhelming number of animals that come in, the Puppy Food Bank wanted to support those centers in their goal to rescue dogs and cats, according to a news release.

“It is our mission that every pet that can be saved should be able to be saved- we want to eliminate the lack of food and resources as a reason to not care for these animals,” said Executive Director Danielle Gunter.

John O’Hurley, the host of ‘The National Dog Show,’ will be the organization’s official pet ambassador and spokesperson.

“We are excited to launch later this spring and support hundreds of pet rescue centers across the state,” said Gunter.
