Nevada Humane Society (Reno, Nevada 89502) is currently in dire need of dry and canned cat food donations. On a daily basis, the local animal shelter goes through about 100 pounds of dry cat food and 70 cans. Additionally, due to the large number of people out of work, the demands on the Pet Food Assistance Program are greater than ever.
Donated pet food will be used primarily for the animals in the shelter, but some food is also used to help people keep their pets while they struggle with the tough economic times. Nevada Humane Society has a partnership with Reno Area Alliance for the Homeless and also provides food for feral cat colonies that are part of local Trap/Neuter/Return efforts.
Tax deductible donations of cat food may be delivered daily, between 11:00 am and 6:30 pm, to the Nevada Humane Society shelter at 2825 Longley Lane, Reno, between Rock Blvd. and Mira Loma Ave. On Saturdays the shelter opens an hour earlier, at 10:00 am.
