Looking to keep its guest happy and fed, the Moose Jaw Humane Society is looking to the community for a bit of help.
Karla Pratt, fundraising and Promotions coordinator for the shelter, said the shelter is once again running low on canned food for both dogs and cats, however there is a more dire need for cat food.
“Because we see so many more cats than dogs each year we tend to need more canned cat food donations than dog,” said Pratt.
On average, Pratt said, the shelter sees around 600 dogs come through its doors each year and sometimes more than 1000 cats.
She said the high volume of cats has to do with a number of factors including; orphaned kittens, litters born in the shelter, strays and surrenders.
Although the community is continually showing its support through food and cash donations, Pratt said, each year around this time food stock numbers seem to hit a low.
“We usually only have to make this call a couple of times a year and when we do, the community comes out and shows us tremendous support.”
