Critteraid if hoping to fill 3 trucks of food for their pigs, alpacas, cats and more

Critteraid Animal Sanctuary will be hosting Num Num November, hoping to fill three trucks with much-needed food and feed for the sanctuary’s cats, dogs, goats, pigs, cows and more.

Trucks will be parked at Parkway Elementary School from noon until 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 6.

Volunteers from PetSmart, Lucky’s Pet Supplies and Penticton Feedway will be there to help with food and explain about what Critteraid is doing to support all the animals in need.

The need and the amount of rescues is increasing, says Critteraid director Jess Byers.

Currently at the Summerland sanctuary, there are 70 cats, 11 dogs, nine goats, 11 pigs, 19 chickens and ducks, four cows, two alpacas and one Alex the llama, said Byers.

Critteraid needs to stock up on food for the winter months for cats, dogs and livestock.

You can see the love and care each animal receives at Critteraid for yourself.

Parkway is located at 225 Kinney Ave.
