Volunteers for Prince William Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals accepted pet food donations at the society’s Pet Adoption on Wheels, or PAW Express van Saturday at Cheshire Station in Dale City.
The van made the rounds throughout Manassas and Prince William County collecting food for the pet food pantry at Manassas City Animal Adoption Center at 10039 Dean Drive in Manassas.
The Prince William Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals recently purchased the van with a $154,565 Petco Foundation grant.
The PWSPCA founded the food pantry in 2009. Since then, hundreds of family pets have benefitted from the free food their owners get from the adoption center.
The pantry serves as a short-term solution to help families feed their pets when “times are tough,” stated a PWSPCA press release.
