Tresa Frye from the Krewe Barkus and Meoux, talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about their annual "Feed the Less Fortunate Pets" food drive.

Frye estimates that as many as half of the homeless across the ArkLaTex have pets with them, and, in  fact, are their only companionship. The former Barkus and Meoux President tells KEEL listeners the what are the animals specific needs - including pet clothing and blankets - and the local businesses who have volunteered to be drop-off points for donations.

Frye adds that if anyone would like more information, or would like to volunteer, she can be reached at 318 294-3977.
