SCAF recognizes a need within the county to provide food for animals in homes where individuals find it difficult to get out and about and for families having fallen temporarily on hard times. The goal of the Reaching Out Program is to offer those individuals food for their animals, free of charge. These pets will have proper food and will not have to be surrendered to a shelter because of financial stress. We offer this program to provide food for as many animals in need as possible.
SCAF holds Pet Food Drives at area stores to collect donations supporting this program. Retail as well as private donations are welcomed. Some types of products we look for may include, but are not limited to, the following items:
- Canned Dog or Cat Food (dented cans are acceptable)
- Dry Dog or Cat Food
- Cat Litter
- Any Animal Food Nearing Expiration
- Rawhide Bones or Treats
Please volunteer to help at the Pet Food Drives even if it’s only for a couple of hours. We can always use another pair of hands. YOUR hands! Check our Event Calendar to find a date and location that’s convenient for you, and then contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Amy, to volunteer. Bring a friend to help out or volunteer as a family!
Can’t foster or adopt a pet but want to help? How about becoming a “Foster Sponsor” or a “Pet Food Sponsor”?
As a sponsor, you donate funds to support the food needs of a pet in our Foster Program or our Pet Food Assistance Program. Amounts vary, so you decide what you want to provide for a pet needing food assistance in either program. Simply indicate your intention when you make your donation, or call Michele for more information.
