The Young-Williams Animal Center has run low on food for its food pantry, which distributes donated pet food to eligible Knox County residents.

Director Tim Adams said the food pantry has an adequate supply of cat food at this point, but the center is down to just a few bags of dog and puppy food, with requests still coming in.

"Once a month we have our pet food pantry from eight until ten, in which we have qualified applicants come to receive pet food. And the benefit obviously to us is that it keeps the pet in the home and not in the center," Shelter Operations Manager Xan Rawls said.

Young-Williams needs small bags of dry dog food in bite-sized pieces most.
