- Dry cat and dog food available to anyone in need. No income requirements. Take one bag of cat food and one bag of dog food each week. The only requirement is that all household pets be spayed or neutered.

If your pet is not altered and you still need food, Espaņola Valley Humane Society will spay or neuter your pet for a reduced rate. Food recipients will receive a membership card to allow for quick and easy pickup at subsequent visits.
