A non-profit organization that provides free food to pet owners is asking the community to help it raise $1,500 for a special delivery. 

Donna DeConcini, a co-founder of the Southern Arizona Animal Food Bank tells KGUN9 that someone in Phoenix has agreed to donate a semi-truck full of free dog food if the organization can just pay for it's transportation to Tucson. 

The organization is hoping to raise the money by the end of March. You can donate online here. The food bank is still under the umbrella of the non-profit Food for Horses. 

The Southern Arizona Animal Food Bank opened January 16 and says since it's opening, the organization has helped more than 100 people keep their pets thanks to donated pet food. 

The organization is working with local veterinarian offices to store the donated food.
