The BC SPCA Williams Lake and District Branch’s pet food bank is still being used, to the point of the dry cat food running low.
With the start of covid, they saw a need for the pet food bank, as people who were needing the food bank, also had pets too.
As time went on, people have still continued to use the pet food bank, to the point where some food starts to run low.
“It varies month to month, but on average twenty to thirty people come up in the month to use the food available.” says Elizabeth Dighton, Manager at the BC SPCA Williams Lake and District Branch.
“Majority of that is dogs, but we do have quite a few cat people as well using it.”
Dighton added that its a possibility that inflation is playing a roll into the food bank being used, but said she’s not too sure.
If anyone is in need of pet food, you’re asked to let them know before hand and they’d be happy to help.
