(SAN ANTONIO, TX – OCTOBER 3, 2017)–– Security Service Charitable Foundation has presented DaisyCares with a $3,000 donation that will be used to provide 10,000 pounds of pet food, four life-saving grants for veterinary medical care and animal welfare education to 250 children.

DaisyCares was established in 2010 to provide pet food and medical care to needy pets, as well as to reduce animal abuse through outreach and education programs. The organization helps some 10,000 families and 25,000 pets annually. Daisy’s Barn, established this year on the San Antonio Food Bank campus, will serve as the hands on component to the organization’s efforts.

“The sad reality is that when families struggle to feed their children, they often have to surrender their pets because they can no longer care for them,” said Brandy Ralston-Lint, senior vice president of corporate communications for Security Service Federal Credit Union. “DaisyCares enables families to keep and adequately care for their animal family members.”

“We are solely funded by private donations like this one from Security Service which is going to have a significant impact on hundreds of families and animals,” said Ami Gordon, founder and board chair of DaisyCares. “We want people to know that their animal companions are important, so we do everything we can to help them with pet food and other necessities when financial challenges arise.”

The Security Service Charitable Foundation helps further Security Service Federal Credit Union’s corporate goal of community service by contributing to deserving organizations and causes in the credit union's market areas.
