West Plano Veterinarian Begins Different Kind of Pet Food Drive
All Creatures of Plano Veterinary Center in Plano, Texas is starting its annual Thanksgiving Food Exchange today. Clients bring in human food donations for a local pantry. Then All Creatures makes an equal pet food donation to a no-kill shelter.
The theme for this year's food drive is "All Creatures' Thanksgiving Food Exchange - You Help People, We Help Pets".
All Creatures invites its clients and local residents to bring in human food or pet food donations (many pantry clients have pets) for Metrocrest Social Services. The cans of corn, jars of peanut butter and boxes of cereal are weighed on the pet scale in the All Creatures lobby and a chart is updated showing the weight of all the donations.
All of the food donations are taken to Metrocrest Social Services at the end of November. Then in December, All Creatures; with the help of the pet food makers; will donate an equal amount (in pounds*) of Hill’s®, Royal Canin, and Purina Pet Food to Operation Kindness – the no-kill animal shelter in Carrollton, Texas.
The goal of the Food Exchange this year is to collect and donate 1000 lbs. of food. So even if you aren’t one of our clients, feel free to bring your food donations to All Creatures of Plano Veterinary Center at 6153 Windhaven Pkwy, Plano 75093. (NW corner of Windhaven and Communications Pkwy). Your human food donation will do double duty by helping the cats and dogs at Operation Kindness. www.operationkindness.org
