A water and pet food store in Williams Lake is helping animals owners who have been forced to leave home due to wildfire evacuations.
Cathy Rosner, manager of Cool Clear Water on Mackenzie Avenue, said companies such as Nutram, Firstmate and Kasiks have all told her she can give away some sample of food and some bags of food for cats and dogs.
“We also always have water and dog treats and some sample treats for cats in the store,” she told the Tribune.
The store also adopted an evacuation family from Begbie Summit south of 100 Mile House.
She cannot provide bottles for water because there is presently a bottle shortage so she is asking any evacuees who need water to bring their own bottles and the store will fill them up for free.
“They say the bottle shortage will last until the end of August,” she added.
The store is open Monday to Friday 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
