Donations of Cat/Kitten Chow Needed!

With kitten season here, our society is in great need of scoopable litter (dust free as much as possible) and especially kitten chow.  If you can donate either or both of these items, the kitties would appreciate it!  Thank you for your kindness and oh yes, the kitties thank you, too!

By the way, we accept donations at any time!  Thank you for your help.
