A drive-through will be set up for registered owners to receive dog food.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The Young-Williams Animal Center and partners, Chewy and the Humane Society of the United States will distribute free dog food to owners in need to make certain no dog goes hungry during the Thanksgiving holiday, according to a press release.
The organizations have donated dog food. YWAC will distribute the food to pre-registered attendees on Sunday, Nov. 21, at its 3201 Division St. location.
To ensure the shelter can fulfill the needs of everyone, they asked participants to register before the event on the shelter website.
