Nevada Humane Society in Carson City and Reno urgently needs cat food

Nevada Humane Society has an urgent need: donations of dry food for adult cats.

Each day, dozens of cats and kittens arrive at the shelter. Shelter staff say this time of year those numbers are especially high, and the supply of cat and kitten food is running critically low.

“One bag of dry food or a case of canned food goes a long way for both foster families and the animals residing here,” said Kimberly Wade, communications director for NHS. “The cats and kittens have one wish here — and that is for you to help us fill their tummies.”
