Pet food donations needed at SPCA LA – NBC Los Angeles

Food is running low at shelters run by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles (spcaLA) and the community is being asked to make donations.

Due to an increase in animal intake, the shelters are experiencing a shortage of food supplies to meet pets’ nutritional needs, said the SPCA LA in a statement.

“With the increasing number of homeless and abandoned pets in our care, we find ourselves facing a critical shortage,” said SPCA LA President, Madeline Bernstein.

Bernstein said the shelters need at least 33 tons of food to make it through the year.

The shelter does not accept open pet food and treats, medications, raw-diet frozen. There are specific used items that may be donated. Check here to see a full list of items needed.
