Cash for Kindness: Pets in Need

Mary Wilson Mary Wilson
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Mary Wilson is a friend to all animals.  She's co-founder of  TAG or "That Animal Group" a non-profit organization that seeks to improve the lives of animals in the River Region and it's created something unique: The only pet food bank in the area.

Jennifer Butler, a TAG volunteer told us it's to help families that have hit hard times. 

"People are having a hard times right now they care barely afford food for themselves much less their pets so it really helps them out."

Jessica Butler nominated Mary for "Cash for Kindness. 

"Ms. Mary is a wonderful person she's so thoughtful and kind..."

Instead of us surprising her, Ms Mary surprised us when she interrupted our interview.  She thought  we were here to do a story about "That Animal Group" but this story is about her and her efforts to educate people about the plight of animals.

She told us the idea was sparked by a love for animals.  

According to Ms. Mary more than 600 families rely on TAG and it's pet food bank and feeding the animals isn't cheap.   TAG could spend more than a hundred dollars a week on pet food. So thanks to Jessica we're here to help.   We gave Jessica 120 dollars she quickly passed along to Ms. Mary.

"This is going to help us tremendously it is going to be a big help."

A big help for some of our 4 legged friends.

If you'd like to volunteer or name a donation to TAG their located in the basement of Dalraida United Methodist Church.  Contact them at 334-270-1339.

If you'd like to nominate someone for "Cash for Kindness" send a email to Vlawson@wsfa.com
