Lee County Animal Services’ Ria Brown was sitting at her desk Tuesday afternoon looking at bags of donated pet food. The problem was, she was only looking at dog food, while LCAS desperately needs cat food. “It’s kind of odd,” said Brown, LCAS communications officer. “Nine times out of 10, when people donate, food it’s dog food. I don’t know why.
LCAS is putting a call out to the community asking for donations of dry and wet cat food, and cat litter.
Through its Pet Pantry, LCAS distributes pet food and supplies to owners that would need to surrender their pets due to their inability to provide food and care.
Currently, LCAS is providing food for more than 800 pets, and also helping several neighborhoods and churches supply pet food for their members and residents’ pets.
