NEWTON — Cat food donations to a Surrey pet food bank are getting a boost this Saturday, thanks to an event at Pet Food ‘N More.
The Surrey Community Cat Coalition says food donations stopped last December. “We don’t ever want to be in that situation again where our food bank has no cat food to give the low income residents who rely on those donations to feed cats in their care,” said Lubna Ekramoddoullah of SCCC.
Regional manager of Pet Food ‘N More Heather Livingstone said for each donation made during the event, the store will donate a can of FirstMate Cat Food.
“We’re happy to help,” Livingstone added.
The public is invited to the pet store (400-7380 King George Blvd.) between noon and 4 p.m. on May 7 to purchase or donate food to help. There will be raffle prizes, free cupcakes and chocolate, as well as in-store specials.
