The ACTion Programs for Animals coalition meeting is this Wendesday, March 4th, at 6:30 p.m. at the Branigan Library's Dresp Room.

Hi Michel,
While not in Cruces, I *love* the idea of a pet food bank - that's just a fantastic idea! Could you possibly share or post some information from the meeting? We could certainly use one in Illinois!!
