ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Angels of Assisi held a drive-thru pet food pantry Sunday.

They gave out free dog and cat food to more than 40 families, handing out more than 80 bags. The nonprofit has a pet food pantry every day during their business hours, so this drive-thru event was a way for them to get the word out.

“A lot of people don’t necessarily have the funds to be able to afford cat and dog food, and we really try to keep people with their pets, so this is a great way to make sure people and pets can stay together,” said Dayna Reynolds, director of communications for Angels of Assisi.

Reynolds said Angels of Assisi had no more pet food left a couple of weeks ago, so they put a plea out for more and received a large outpouring of support, including a truckload of food from the United States Postal Service.
