Two young boys are helping local animals this week by collecting pet food and supplies from their neighbors.

Like many areas of our country, the community of Alice, Texas is going through tough economic times. After seeing how many families were having a hard time feeding themselves, two young boys decided to try to make the lives of area families—and their pets—a little easier.

On Tuesday, 7-year-old Moose Salinas and his 12-year-old brother Willia Kuhlman went around their community distributing boxes to collect pet food and supplies.

Both boys recently became members of Neighbors Offering Animals Hope (NOAH), a nonprofit organization located in Texas.

The boys will be collecting pet food and supplies from neighbors for the Alice Food Pantry from January 9-13. Donations will go to the pantry to give residents a direct place to access the donated pet food.

Donations can be made to any of the following locations:

  • Jim Wells County Sheriff's Office
  • Alice Fire and Police Departments
  • Bordeaux Apartments
  • Hillcrest Elementary
  • Alice High School
  • Alice Christian School
  • Good Foundation Daycare
  • William Adams Middle School
  • Dubose Elementary School
  • Mary R. Garcia Elementary School
  • St. Joseph Catholic School

Residents are encouraged to bring all types of dog and cat food and treats as well as cat litter, blankets, leashes, and toys.
