Critteraid if they hope to fill 3 food trucks for their pigs, alpacas, cats and more

Critteraid Animal Sanctuary will host 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 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, November 6.

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

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

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

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

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

Enter your name in a raffle when you come to the food drive to win a VIP farm tour for you and three friends.

Parkway is located at 225 Kinney Ave.
