ESPANOLA, N.M. (AP) – The Espanola Valley Humane Society and the northern New Mexico food bank are teaming up to make sure low income New Mexicans also have food for their pets.

The humane society and The Food Depot said Tuesday they will launch an 18-month pilot partnership to provide donated pet food through The Food Depot’s Mobile Food Pantry Program, which delivers food to multiple locations across Espanola, Chimayo, Dixon, El Rito, Ojo Caliente, Truchas and Vallecitos.

Officials say local businesswoman Evelyn Ward brought the nonprofits together to launch the program.

The Espanola Valley Humane Society says it will also use the program to expand the reach of its free spay and neutering program.
