Statement issued by the Allen County SPCA:
On Thursday each week, the Allen County SPCA hands out small portions of dog and cat food to families who have pets in need. The food, of all brands, has come in from donations from our local Sam’s Club, Wal-Mart and local individuals. Donations of these items is down and this week the shelter ran out of food in the first two hours of being open Thursday. Currently the shelves are bare for next week’s food pantry. The community is asked to please donate new/unopened bags of dry dog and cat food and bring it to the shelter during business hours. On average, the Allen County SPCA helps between 40 and 60 families per week with more than 350 pounds provided each week.
