Help Feed Homeless Cats at Nevada Humane Society

Posted: Updated:

From the Nevada Humane Society:

The community has always been generous in providing food for its homeless pets, and Nevada Humane Society is once again seeking donations of cat and kitten food.

"During the summer months, we tend to see more cats and kittens arriving at the shelter. Right now, we have over 100 kittens and twice as many adult cats in our care, making our need for cat and kitten food greater than ever," said Denise Stevens, Operations Director for Nevada Humane Society. "While we have a very large supply of dog food, we are unable to meet the need for cat food. We're very grateful for cat food donations of any size—even a small bag will help."

On a daily basis, Nevada Humane Society goes through about 120 pounds of dry cat food feeding the cats in their care. In addition, they give out 500 pounds of cat food a week for colonies of neutered feral cats and for people that qualify for the Pet Food Assistance Program, a program designed to help people experiencing economic hard times to keep their pets.

Donations of cat and kitten food are tax-deductible, and any brand or size bag is welcome. Donations may be delivered daily, between 11:00 am and 6:30 pm, to Nevada Humane Society's shelter at 2825 Longley Lane, Reno, between Rock Blvd. and Mira Loma Ave. On Saturdays, the shelter opens an hour earlier at 10:00 am. Monetary donations for the purchase of cat food are also accepted by calling 775-856-2000 ext. 324.
