We’re Starting a Pet Food Money Bank!
From the SPA
By Megan Gabel
The SPA, a no kill shelter, houses a combined average of 100 cats and dogs. When they become members of families, we take in more animals and provide food, care, and shelter for them until they too become family companions. All our animals routinely receive vaccinations and are sterilized. Last year, 85 dogs and 135 cats were adopted from us. Dogs and cats are on our waiting lists, hoping to get into the SPA. All of these lovely animals must be fed. Some are so malnourished when they arrive that we must give them special supplemental food until they gain strength and have some meat on their bones.
In existence for more than 30 years, the SPA relies solely on donations to survive, and unfortunately, runs at a loss. We economize, but need help covering our basic expenses. That’s where you come in. Please make a monetary deposit to our Pet Food Money Bank, 100 per cent of which will be applied to our annual cost of feeding our family-pets-to-be. Because animals do not adjust well to changes in diet and we lack sufficient storage space, we need to cover the cost of feeding them the food they are accustomed to eating. Our goal is to raise 120,000 pesos or US$8,500. Perhaps you can afford 10 or 150 pesos? No amount is too small (or too big)! Spread the word. Ask a friend to donate and friends of friends. Let’s get a chain going. Every contribution helps!
