FOOD FOR DOGS & CATS
Dog and cat food is currently provided for the animals thanks to the generous support of Royal Canin, and the majority of animals in our care are fed only Royal Canin diets. However, sometimes animals require special veterinary diets for specific health conditions. If you are interested in donating food for animals in these situations, or have unopened to donate from an animal with a specialized diet, please call your closest shelter to make arrangements.
Food for specialized diets (Hypo-allergenic, Urinary S/O) can usually be purchased from your local veterinary clinic.
Gift cards are also a great way to help the animals, allowing us to purchase supplies as the need arises. The following is a list of companies that supplies are frequently purchased from.
- Global Pet Foods
- Pet Valu
- Home Hardware
- Home Depot
- Canadian Tire
- Your local grocery store
