Food Donations

Calls have gone out to local businesses requesting donations of surplus cat food to help feed the various cat colonies. We are hopeful that a few local businesses will be able to help offset the cost of feeding the colonies over the long cold winter ahead. Thank you to everyone who received our calls. Hopefully some generous local business owners will help with this cause. We'll keep you posted as donations arrive.
