SpcaLA gets help from ABC7 viewers with pet food shortage

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Generous Eyewitness News viewers pitched in to help with a serious pet food shortage at the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals - Los Angeles' animal shelters.

Earlier in the week, spcaLA said their reserve food sheds at many of their shelters were nearly empty due to an increase in the number of animals they're taking in.

Eyewitness news viewers who saw the story have come out in droves to make donations.

The spcaLA sent a photo to Eyewitness News showing food that was dropped off on Saturday alone. Without help, the non-profit says it would have run out very quickly.

SpcaLA sent in this photo to Eyewitness News, showing all the food donated by generous viewers on Saturday, Dec. 27, 2014.
