Calling all Kitty Helpers! Cat Food Donation Drive!

City CatDo you want to do something to help homeless cats?   We’ve got an easy way to help.

The Animal Rescue League of Boston works with the Boston Homeless Cats Group (BHCG) to manage the population of feral cats through “Trap, Neuter Spay and Release” programs. These programs reduce the feral cat population, protect cats and humans from diseases like rabies, and provide a humane and effective alternative to other population management methods.

To manage these programs the League needs donations.  So we’re collecting cans and bags of unopened cat food to drop off on our next delivery day (Thursday, March 15).  See, we told you it would be easy!

Any unopened food is welcome, whether its unused food from your home, purchased food, or even gift cards to local supermarkets and pet stores. The food is used to support feral cat monitoring programs and to trap feral cats for veterinary attention.

You can donate food right at the store, or if it’s more convenient for you to bring it directly to the League, then you’ll just need to bring your donation to the shelter (address below) by Monday, March 12, 2012, from 8.30am to 6.30pm:

About Kathy Palmer

I grew up in NJ and Belgium and eventually settled in Portland, ME. Until missing the big city, which inspired a return to Boston in 2010, and the opening of Fish & Bone on Newbury Street. Fish & Bone and its original sibling store Fetch (est. 2000) bring together some of the things I love the most: animals, real food, great design, having an impact, the natural world, urban life, creative solutions, good community, and a good laugh. Zip is all pug, but I'm a cultural mutt.
