Branford Compassion Club will hold its annual fall food drive and fundraiser Saturday, October 20 at its Feline Rescue & Adoption Center, 2037 Foxon Road. This event coincides with Global Cat Day, which promotes awareness of and compassion for feral cats throughout the United States. Many feline rescue organizations nationwide will be hosting special events in observance of the day. Branford Compassion Club is in dire need of cat food to get it through the fall and winter seasons, as well as monetary donations to fund spay/neuter programs which reduce the feral cat population. Volunteers from BCC take care of multiple feral colonies in the surrounding area every day, 365 days a year. Monetary donations and/or donations of unopened canned (pate) and dry cat food can be dropped off at the Branford Compassion Club Feline Rescue and Adoption Center, 2037 Foxon Road in North Branford, on Saturday, October 20 between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.
