Feral cats are fed by volunteers at the Surrey Community Cat Coalition.

Cats in Surrey and White Rock still going hungry

Surrey Community Cat Coalition desperate for donations of food

Cat food donations to pet food banks that serve clients in Surrey and White Rock have halted, and cats in need are not getting any food to eat, say local feline advocates.

The Surrey Community Cat Coalition (SCCC) has learned over the weekend that its partners have no cat food to give to low income residents and community volunteers who rely on cat food donations to feed the cats in their care.

“Cat food donations were low earlier in the fall, but now our food bank partners have only dog food and nothing for cats,” said SCCC manager Lubna Ekramoddoullah. “We are hoping people in our community will think of these hungry cats when they’re doing their holiday shopping, and buy dry and canned cat food to donate.”

There are veterinarians and pet supply stores in Surrey and White Rock that are collecting cat food donations for the coalition. Visit surreycats.ca, and click “Feed a Cat” to find the nearest location to drop off donated cat food.

The SCCC was formed in 2014 in response to the growing number of free-roaming cats in Surrey, which was just too many for any individual organizations to handle alone.

The coalition coordinates rescue and education efforts to address the number of unwanted cats in Surrey and the underlying causes.

Their mission is to end the overpopulation of cats in Surrey and improve their welfare through spay/neuter, adoption, public education, and advocacy.
