The Santa Paws pet food drive at the NC Aquarium on Roanoke Island brought in 4,500 pounds of dog and cat food, plus assorted blankets, toys and cleaning products for donation to the Outer Banks SPCA. The drive was held from November 21 through January 3, and NCARI delivered the food to the SPCA headquarters on January 5. The aquarium would like to thank everyone who came out and showed such wonderful support for its SPCA neighbors and the great work they do.
The North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island is currently hosting the Ton of Love food drive to help stock the shelves of the Roanoke Island Food Pantry. Guests are invited to drop off non-perishable items at the aquarium through February 14.
