A representative from the organization attended the grand opening to accept several pallets of food for pets in need.
“We are thrilled to open our first distribution center in Texas in the Dallas/Fort Worth market. In addition to benefitting the many businesses and customers in the metroplex, the new location will also allow us to better access new and nearby markets,” said Blaine Phillips, CEO of Phillips Pet Food & Supplies. “At Phillips Pet, we are committed to providing high quality food and supplies from an assortment of excellent vendors, with the ultimate goal of helping animals across the nation live better lives. Through our donations to shelters and organizations such as Arlington Animal Services, we are able to give much-needed assistance to animals that do not yet have homes.”
During the grand opening, guests were invited to tour the 108,000 square-foot distribution center.
Notable guests in attendance included members of the Arlington City Council, the Arlington City Fire Department, the Arlington Police Department and Arlington Animal Services.
