Supplies of dry cat are critically low again for Lee County Domestic Animal Services’ (LCDAS) Community Pet Pantry. The agency needs donations to continue assisting pet owners facing tough economic times. Although all supplies are low, the supply of cat food is once again at an extremely low level and the agency will have to turn away cat owners in need if additional donations are not received very soon.

LCDAS is currently providing food for more than 1,000 pets directly and also helping several low-income neighborhoods supply pet food for their residents’ pets.

Anyone who can assist may bring donations to the shelter at 5600 Banner Drive, Fort Myers, next to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office off Six Mile Cypress Pkwy. Donations may be left at the door any time the shelter is not open.

Pet owners receiving publicassistance may contact LCDAS at 239-533-7387 (LEE-PETS) to be placed on an approved list to receive pet food. A Spay/Neuter and Vaccine Program is also available for those on public assistance.
