Cat rescuers clawing for food donations

Surrey Community Cat Coalition in desperate need of cat food.

A local cat rescue organization is in desperate need of donations of cat food.

With dwindling donations during the hot summer and recent wind storm, The Surrey Community Cat Coalition (SCCC) has partnered with the Surrey Urban Mission, Sources South Surrey Food Bank, and veterinarians and pet supply stores in the Surrey area to provide cat food to residents in Surrey who need help feeding their cats as well as stray and homeless cats.

The coalition is asking for pet owners and the general public to donate food as soon as possible.

A list of locations with SCCC collection boxes can be found here.

The donated cat food goes to help cat owners in the community who earn low or have no incomes, so they can spend what little money they do have on essential care for themselves. The food also helps residents caring for stray and feral community cats.

The SCCC was formed in 2014 in response to the growing number of free-roaming cats in Surrey, which was too many for any individual organizations to handle alone.

The coalition coordinates rescue and education efforts to address the number of unwanted cats in Surrey and the underlying causes.

Their mission is to end the overpopulation of cats in Surrey and improve their welfare through spay/neuter programs, adoption, public education, and advocacy.
