UTICA, NY - Numerous drive-thru food distributions have occurred in the Mohawk Valley to help those in need during the coronavirus pandemic.

Another one popped up Tuesday at the Parkway Rec Center's upper parking lot.

This one though was to help out our hungry 4-legged friends.

4PetSake food pantry, along with Staffworks, distributed an estimated 2,000 pounds of pet food, treats, and cat litter to pet owners, doing their best to make it through these difficult times.

"We all feel bad for the animals," said 4PetSake's Kris Wilson. "I don't know, they just need so much help. We just feel that people need to take care of themselves as far as food and bills right now. So let us help them with their pets, as far as food goes."

Wilson says they plan to have more pet food distributions in the future.
