With an influx of young cats coming into the Moose Jaw Humane Society shelter, employees are asking for food donations from the public to feed the animals.
The Moose Jaw Humane Society is running low on food for the homeless animals at the shelter and they are asking the public for help.
With an influx of young kittens coming into the shelter in the last week or so, supervisor Ellen Williams said they are in definite need.
“We’re extremely low on the wet food for dogs, cats and kittens and then the dry for kittens,” she said. “The moist food for very young kittens is very important because when they are very young they can’t actually eat dry food yet. So if they are being bottle-fed and we’re transitioning them over, the wet food is extremely important.”
The Humane Society posted to Facebook Friday morning about the food shortage and has had small donations since, but they are still in need of help.
“It really started to get really drastic over the last few days,” said Williams. “Over the last week we have had a lot of kittens come in and obviously a lot more food is being used.”
With around 50 kittens in the shelter—and even more adult animals—Williams said they animals are doing fine for now. However, she still encouraged residents to bring their donations down to the shelter on the very west end of Stadacona Street.
