Texans recall the winter storm of 2021 and the subsequent power grid failure and life altering ramifications. One Fort Worth resident, Amy, was a victim of those ramifications.

When the power failed in Amy’s Fort Worth apartment complex, the pipes froze. When the power came back on, the frozen pipes burst leaving the residents of the complex without running water. Many residents were able to evacuate to stay with friends and family.

Amy and her beloved rescue dog and emotional support animal, Xena, were not that lucky. They spent over 30 days in her apartment without running water.

The emotional and financial burden was substantial. Don’t Forget to Feed Me Pet Food Bank was able to assist with pet food to ensure Amy could continue to provide for Xena, her only companion.

Amy was overcome with gratitude telling Don’t Forget to Feed Me Pet Food Bank, “I’m going to cry. Thank you so much, it means a lot to me.”
