The shelves at Revelstoke Humane Society are brimming with food

‘I owe it to the community’

The shelves are brimming with cat food at Revelstoke Humane Society thanks to a community drive led by Dan Berg and the team at Jacobson Ford. On Saturday, Feb. 3, Berg and Ken Zmaeff dropped off a pile of cat food and $400 in cash donations to support the society.

Berg, who has a passion for animals, has been leading the drive for nearly a decade. For Berg, giving back to the community is embedded in what it means to live in Revelstoke.

“This community does so much for itself. Everybody is so helpful here…I owe it to the community,” said Berg.

President of the Revelstoke Humane Society Leanne Harasym said that the society worked with Jacobson Ford, as well as Save-On-Foods, where they hosted a day for people to drop off food. Currently the shelter is only home to one cat, but that can always change quickly.

“You never know when you’re going to get a litter of kittens or a couple of litters of kittens,” said Harasym.
