Can-do attitude in feeding cats

Pet Food 'N More accepting donations on Saturday, May 7.

Pet Food 'N More is accepting donations for the Surrey Community Cat Coalition on May 7.

Cat food donations to the Surrey pet food bank are getting a boost this Saturday with a Pet Food ‘N More in-store food drive.

After food donations halted last December, volunteers with the Surrey Community Cat Coalition (SCCC) have been working hard to ensure donations continue all year round.

As part of that effort, Pet Food ‘N More in Newton is holding a food drive on May 7 from 12-4 p.m. at #400, 7380 King George Blvd.

“We don’t ever want to be in that situation again where our food bank has no cat food to give to the low income residents who rely on those donations to feed cats in their care,” said Lubna Ekramoddoullah, manager of the SCCC. “Pet Food ‘N More and their customers were some of our biggest donors in December. It didn’t surprise me when they decided to hold a spring food drive for us. ”

“We’re happy to help cats in need,” says Heather Livingstone, regional manager, Pet Food ‘N More. “For each donation made during the event, Pet Food ‘N More will donate a can of FirstMate Cat Food.”

The public is invited to the event and asked to bring or purchase at the store canned and/or dry cat food to donate. There will also be raffle prize draws, free cupcakes and chocolate, and in-store specials.

The store is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
