DaisyCares Pet Food Program
DaisyCares and the San Antonio Food Bank are partnering to create the DaisyCares Pet Food Program – a program designed to provide struggling families and individuals with pet food assistance for their pets. A recent New York Times article states that “animal shelters have reported a steep rise in the number of cats and dogs being surrendered as owners face unemployment, home foreclosures, evictions and other financial hardships.” As more families struggle with difficult choices like paying the rent or buying food, some have to choose between keeping their pet and putting food on the table.
The DaisyCares Pet Food Program will provide pet food to families through our established network of partner agencies already providing emergency food assistance to families and individuals in need. The San Antonio Food Bank will work with local retail stores and with pet food manufactures to obtain donations of pet food and products for distribution.
Pets provide comfort to families and individuals, and families struggling financially more than likely will also need food for their pets.

PAWedu, a program of DaisyCares, and the San Antonio Food Bank are partnering to ensure that measures are taken to achieve a community where animal cruelty is unacceptable. PAWedu is an innovative online rehabilitation education program for individuals accused of animal cruelty. It is our hope that this program will prevent first time and repeat offenses against animals.
