Thanks to the generous donations from local stores, including Walmart and Target, we are able to supplement dog and cat food to families in need. We are always in need of cat food, dry and wet, every month.We work hard to match the capabilities of the foster parent with the needs of the animal.

Bene-Bac® Plus is recommended any time an animal experiences changing nutritional or environmental conditions.FOS or fructooligosaccharides, and MOS or mannanoligosaccharides are natural occurring carbohydrates. FOS provide nutrients for beneficial bacteria (“prebiotic” effect). Research has shown that dogs supplemented with FOS had decreased harmful intestinal bacteria. Controlling harmful bacteria can help reduce odorous components in feces, diarrhea, & other digestive disturbances. MOS enhances microbial populations and modulates systemic immune function.
