SPCA holding cat food drive

Bring along a can or bag of cat food to the Crossroads Street Festival.

The Cariboo and District SPCA will be welcoming the donations when the event is held this Saturday at George Street and Fifth Avenue.

"Head over Handle Axe Throwing reached out to us to offer a donation for our pet food bank and when they heard we were in urgent need of cat food they invited us to have a tent next to theirs," spokesperson Alyssa Stauble said.

While they have plenty of dog food in stock, Stauble says they have no cat or kitten food left.

"We support more than 290 cats through this program so any donation of wet or dry cat or kitten food, or cash donations would be so appreciated," Stauble said. "We want to support families in our community and help make sure their pets don't go hungry."

The BC SPCA has also started a pet food bank in conjunction with the Salvation Army.
