Crates are available at Reynolds Market and Shopko in Sidney where , people qan make donations of pet food. "So far, it's been mostly dog food, but all animal food is needed," Dunn said. "All the donations will stay here. It's not going to California or anything like that." If you have any ques- tions about the project or about animal adoption, you can call Dunn at 406- 478-2008. Dunn feels there are many stray animals, espe- cially cats, currently in the area. Deadline for the dona- tions is Dec. 20.
