PALMDALE – The City of Palmdale and several of its Neighborhood Watch groups partnered to collect and donate more than 600 pounds of pet food, along with dog houses and bedding to Antelope Valley Animal Services (AVAS).
“This is the second year we’ve done this and it’s a great way to help out a great local organization,” said Palmdale Crime Prevention Officer Kery German. “Animals are often overlooked during the holidays, and this is just one way we can help address the never ending need for food and shelter for animals in unfortunate circumstances.”
AVAS works to strengthen the bond between pets and their families. Their programs are designed to help reduce unwanted litters and promote pet health and responsible custodianship. They also assist the animals that live on the streets and in the desert by providing rehabilitation and socialization so they may find a forever home.
Donations are needed throughout the year as are volunteers.
