Truro Daily News - - Front Page - DARTMOUTH, N.S. BY TRURO DAILY NEWS STAFF

The Nova Sco­tia SPCA is look­ing to help fam­i­lies in need be­fore the win­ter sea­son hits by pro­vid­ing them with food to feed an­i­mals in need.

That ap­plies to any­one who can’t prop­erly feed their pets or those who res­cue dogs or who care for a large group of cats in their com­mu­nity.

Be­gin­ning to­day (Tues­day), the Nova Sco­tia SPCA will be the re­cip­i­ent of more than 37,000 lbs. of pet food from PetS­mart Charities of Canada’s – Buy a Bag, Give a Meal Pro­gram, and will be shar­ing it with the com­mu­nity and those in need.

Free, giant bags of pet food are avail­able for pickup at the SPCA’s Dartmouth An­i­mal Shel­ter at 5 Scarfe Court, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

“Win­ter is com­ing and the Nova Sco­tia SPCA wants to en­sure all an­i­mals, even those in low-in­come com­mu­ni­ties across the prov­ince have full bel­lies this sea­son,” said Elizabeth Mur­phy, CEO of the Nova Sco­tia SPCA.

In ad­di­tion to invit­ing in­di­vid­u­als, res­cuers and com­mu­nity mem­bers, the SPCA will also be load­ing four U-Haul trucks with pal­lets of food to de­liver food to or­ga­ni­za­tions across the prov­ince that sup­port low-in­come fam­i­lies.

For more in­for­ma­tion, the SPCA can be con­tacted at: info@sp­cans.ca.
