HOUSTON (April 18, 2013) — Emergency Pet Food & Supply Drive for West, Texas.  Bark’s 5th Avenue (www.barks5thave.com) is hosting an Emergency Pet Food and Supply Drive where Houstonian’s can donate food and pet supplies for the pets displaced and injured in the explosion in West, Texas.  The food and supply drive will take place at Bark’s 5th Avenue, located at 10620 FM 1960 Rd. West Houston, Texas 77098, on Saturday April 20th from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“As soon as we heard about the tragedy we wanted to help,” said owner/master trainer Pennie Mahon.  “Given the wide-spread impact and the high volume of people who appear to be displaced by the explosion, we knew that this would have a direct effect on family pets and animals in the area.  Many times animals are pushed aside and forgotten during these situations and we want to help the people and animals of West, Texas during this difficult and chaotic time.”

In addition to donations from the public, Nature’s Variety and Precise brand foods will also donate bags of food.

Bark’s 5th Avenue will deliver all food and supplies to local animal shelters in the West, Texas area next week.
