CatVando breeds compassion, not cats

Pet-Food Bank

When faced with financial hardship, families often choose to give up their pets, as they can no longer afford to feed or care for them. The sad result is that now, more than ever, many more are being given up. And those that are not lucky enough to be accepted into a shelter, are being turned out onto the streets to fend for themselves. A once loyal family pet, is now faced with the threat of danger, sickness and starvation, as they walk the streets scavenging for food and water and a place to shelter.
