The officer initially connected with the store manager about the current dog food shortage they are experiencing. The shortage has limited shoppers to purchasing one bag of dog food; however, the manager granted the officer an additional bag for purchase because of the shelter status.

And yet this amazing story isn't over. After the shift of another store employee ended, one more bag of dog food was delivered to the shelter, and now our daily donation of dog food is up to nine bags.
From the MCAS staff: "Thank you to the extremely generous people for coming to the aid of shelter dogs during these hard times."
If you would like to donate dog or cat food to MCAS, they are located at 971A Coffman Road in Whitewater. You can also call them at (970) 242-4646 or email them at AC.Dispatch@mesacounty.us.
In addition to food donations, they are in pressing need of non-clumping cat litter, and can always use towels (used is great) and treats for both dogs and cats.
