Pet food drive benefits local animal welfare groups and pet owners in need

Pet Paradise’s 5th annual Food for Paws food drive is set to begin November 1st and local residents are encouraged to stop by their local Pet Paradise resort before December 31st to donate to the drive. This year, all Pet Paradise Houston locations will be donating to aniMEALS on Wheels. Food for Paws will benefit over 18 non-profit organizations as well as pet owners who are struggling to feed their pets. To date the annual pet food drive has collected and distributed over 50,000 pounds of pet food.

“At Pet Paradise we are very passionate about helping nonprofit organizations and pet owners in need,” explains Pet Paradise CEO and Executive Chairman, Fred Goldsmith. “ We hope this year we will be able to make our biggest impact to date.”

Last year, Pet Paradise collected over 20,000 pounds of pet food. To encourage more people to donate food, Pet Paradise is offering one free night of boarding to people that donate 20lbs of pet food or more.

The holidays are a great time to help others and Pet Paradise is committed to helping four-legged friends in need. For a full list of the charities the pet food drive will be impacting, visit
