SPCA Pet Pantry Program Helping Supply Food to Animals in Need

Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) -

Some hungry cats in Charlottesville and Albemarle County need your help, and the Charlottesville Albemarle SPCA is stepping up.

The program is called the “Pet Pantry”, and supplies cat food to pets in the community that are in need. The SPCA houses about 4,000 pets over the course of the year, and this program is its way of making sure no cat is forgotten.

"The Pet Pantry is for members out in the community who are feeding community cats, or people that are facing temporary economic challenges and might not be able to provide food for their animals. So they can come here, speak with someone at the front desk, and we'll help hopefully connect them with food,” said Lisa Lane, SPCA marketing director.

The SPCA says getting pets fixed can help reduce the growing need, so the shelter is offering free spaying and neutering until Mother’s Day.
