SAN ANGELO – Concho Valley PAWS is asking for donations of dog food while officials investigate the cause of a mysterious illness present in the facility.
"To those of you who have donated dog food THANK YOU! We are still in need of dog food as we are committed to providing the shelter with food for the next 10 days as we try to identify what has caused several dogs to fall ill. Our veterinary team suggested pulling the shelter's food until testing is complete. It is unlikely the shelter's food is the source of the issue, but we can't rule it out until test results come back. So until that time, we will be providing Pedigree dog food to over 200 dogs each day.
Without your help, this can get costly as we are also providing for the veterinary care for the ill dogs at the shelter. To prevent causing additional health issues such as GI upset we are strictly asking for the same brand of food. Pedigree works well for us as it is not too rich and has no recent recalls.
Please visit the link below to purchase food online and have it shipped directly to us or bring your donations to 3134 N US 67 and call or text 325-656-7387 if the gate is closed."
