MUNCIE, Ind. — Instead of parking ticket dues, the Muncie Police Department said residents could pay their fees in cat food and supplies.

Residents delivered hundreds of cans of cat food, bags of dry food and litter, treats and other supplies to Muncie Animal Care & Services, which is overrun with cats and kittens in need.

This offer ran until 4 p.m. July 19, and by that morning, police shared pictures of a storage room overflowing with donated supplies. Some of the donations even came from people who didn't even have parking tickets.
