AlleyCATS Alliance is facing challenges as a result of COVID-19 and kitten season

A Penticton pet store is helping out a local cat rescue organization that is struggling due to COVID-19.

For the month of June, Bosley’s Penticton is raising funds and collecting kitten supplies to help AlleyCATS Alliance.

The local cat rescue, which is currently managing kitten season, urgently needs support as donations have dropped significantly because of COVID-19 restrictions.

Bosley’s manager Ashley Auger-Patry said it is important to support non-profit organizations like AlleyCATS for the work they do.

“Kitten season is always a challenge for AlleyCATS, however this year it is particularly difficult as donations are down and opportunities to showcase pets available for adoption have dropped significantly because of the pandemic. As they’re currently caring for numerous litters of kittens, we want to do something to help them,” said Auger-Patry.

For the month of June, each time a customer purchases select products at Bosley’s, $1 from the purchase of each qualifying product will be donated to AlleyCATS.

The store is also collecting donations of much needed supplies, particularly kitten food and non-clumping litter.

“The volunteers at AlleyCATS do such important work caring for abandoned and feral cats across the Okanagan Valley,” said Auger-Patry. “We’re very excited to be able to do something to help them and are extremely grateful for our customers’ support.”

To donate supplies visit Bosley’s or contact AlleyCATS.
