Glowing on the River

It started with a belief that the best way to keep animals out of shelters was to keep them at home.

In five years, the Don’t Forget to Feed Me Pet Food Pantry has grown from a small initiative of the Tarrant Area Food Bank to an independent nonprofit organization serving pet owners from Keller to Mansfield. In 2012, volunteers collected and distributed more than 50 tons of pet food to families experiencing challenging financial situations.
The organization’s birthday celebration, "Glowing on the River," is Oct. 5 at 6 p.m. This free community event will include live music by the Lone Star Rambler Band and Driver, games, food and birthday cake. Join the festivities at 6 p.m. at the Pavilion at Trinity Park at 7th Street and Stayton Way before a glowing twilight walk along the Trinity River. Your four-legged friends are welcome, too.
