URGENT NEED: Help save Texas wildlife, donate dog and cat food

Wildlife Center of Texas rehabilitates raccoons and many other native wild animals (Wildlife Center of Texas)

The Houston SPCA’s Wildlife Center of Texas has an urgent need for dog and cat food as they work to care for many late season baby and adult mammals. Each year, more than 12,000 injured or orphaned wild animals are brought to the rescue and rehabilitation facility.

According to the non-profit organization’s social media post asking for dog and cat food: “The type and brand do not matter, and opened bags are okay!”
