It's a specific request, yes, but perhaps if you have some of those brands that you can spare, or happen to see the kind of food the shelter is asking for and have a few extra dollars to spend, to purchase what you can and donate it.

It's clear from Cape Atlantic Cats' Facebook post they're worried about having the resources needed to care for their feline friends. Please share this story with any cat lovers you know who may also be willing to offer assistance.
