San Antonio Animal Care Services announced last week that it had just nine bags of dog food in its pantry, the television station reported. Since then, the nonprofit group had more than 8,000 pounds of pet food donated within 24 hours, KSAT reported.

The pantry was part of the shelter’s Furst Responders Team, the television station reported.

"Your donations have allowed our Pet Pantry program to keep running strong and help pets in need," officials wrote in a Facebook post. "Thank you for helping us make a pawsitive difference. Seeing your support encourages our continued commitment to help animals in need."
