Cat-food donations to pet food banks that serve clients in Surrey and White Rock have halted, and cats in need are not getting any food to eat.

The Surrey Community Cat Coalition has learned over the weekend that its partners have no cat food to give to low-income residents and community volunteers who rely on cat-food donations to feed the cats in their care.

Cat-food donations were low earlier in the fall, but now our food-bank partners have only dog food. We are hoping people in our community will think of these hungry cats when they’re doing their holiday shopping, and buy dry and canned cat food to donate.

There are many veterinarians and pet-supply stores in Surrey and White Rock that are collecting cat food donations for the coalition – just visit surreycats.ca to find the nearest location.

The Surrey Community Cat Coalition was formed in 2014 in response to the growing number of free-roaming cats in Surrey, which was just too many for any individual organizations to handle alone.

The coalition co-ordinates rescue and education efforts to address the number of unwanted cats in Surrey and the underlying causes. Our mission is to end the overpopulation of cats in Surrey and improve their welfare through spay/neuter, adoption, public education and advocacy.
