SCOTTSDALE, AZ — The Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center says they are in desperate need of food donations for the animals in their care.

They are looking for good quality dry dog and cat food to supplement the fresh food offerings for their bears, coyotes, foxes, skunks, coatis and raccoons.

Southwest Wildlife says the need comes after a change in policy from their longtime food supplier.

"The animals have benefited from their generosity for many years, but at this time, our supplier has chosen to focus their donations solely on domestic animal rescues," the wildlife center said in a statement.

In addition to the food supply changes, Southwest Wildlife has been inundated with increased numbers of injured and orphaned animals.

Wish lists are available on their website and on Amazon for food and other animal care items.

If you are able to donate food, it can be sent to: Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center, 27026 N. 156th Street, Scottsdale, AZ 85262.

Some of the wanted food items they list on their website include:

  • Purina Pro Plan - any flavor
  • Purina Pro Plan Puppy
  • Purina ONE - any flavor
  • Purina Beneful - any flavor
  • Nutro Max Cat - chicken or salmon flavor
  • Nutro Max Kitten
