Pet food donations going to needy animals

Sooke Animal Food and Rescue Society collection food for Our Place and Victoria Cool Aid Society

This Saturday (Oct. 4) bring pet food and supplies to Paws on Cook to donate to the Victoria branch of the Sooke Animal Food and Rescue Society.

“We run pet food banks from Victoria to Port Renfrew as well as the (First Nations) reserve in east Sooke,” said Kai Yates, co-founder of SAFARS.

Yates puts together hampers of pet food and supplies to donate to Our Place Society every two weeks. Now, SAFARS has also partnered with the Victoria Cool Aid Society, so food and supplies collected will also be given out there.

Although she is happy about the new partnership, Yates said the demand for pet food is now greater than ever, and it will be difficult to keep up without generous donations.

Yates will be collecting donations at Paws on Cook at 359 Cook Street in Victoria from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. .

Those interested in volunteering can contact Yates at 250-418-5892 or email safarsorg@gmail.com.
