Thanksgiving is around the corner, but not every animal will be lucky enough to get table scraps — or to have a place to go home to. MSPCA-Angell is running a ‘Catsgiving’ food drive so homeless cats can eat well during the holidays, too.
To help the outdoor cats living under porches and in alleyways, MSPCA is asking for donations of wet and dry cat food. The drive started Friday and runs through Sunday, Nov. 24.
Donations can be dropped off at MSPCA’s Boston adoption center during open hours, or 24 hours a day at the Mandarin Oriental hotel at 776 Boylston St.
The donated food will be distributed to local caretakers who feed and look after outdoor cats as well as families struggling to afford pet food, according to a release from MSPCA-Angell.
“Donations of unopened wet and dry food is the single most important way to help this vulnerable feline population,” Mike Keiley, director of adoption centers and programs at the MSPCA-Angell, said in a statement.
