MSPCA-Angell, Northeast Animal Shelter to Host “Catsgiving” Food Drive

                MSPCA-Angell and Northeast Animal Shelter are hosting a Thanksgiving food drive for cats in need around the Massachusetts area.  A spokesperson for the shelters said that both the cats in the community as well as those who live in the shelters hope to help each of the cats.  Special food donations for cats will run through November 30.  Dry and wet cat food will be accepted on the food flight.  Opened bags of dry food can also be donated.  “We really hope this food drive continues to sustain these efforts through the end of the year,” said Alyssa Krieger, MSPCA associate director for community outreach.  “For that to happen, we need to collect about 200,000 cat meals.”  Donation boxes are located outside the MSPCA Adoption Centers in Boston, Methuen, and Cape Cod, as well as at NEAS in Salem.  Donations can be made online at https://mspca.org/wishlist and will be delivered directly to the shelters.  "With inflation rising this year, our cat food donations have slowed, at a time when more people are coming to us asking for help," Krieger said.  "We've been holding Catsgiving food drives for nearly a decade now, but the need is definitely greater this year."  More information about the Catering campaign can be found here.
