Feeding Our Seniors’ Furry Companions
Ensuring Both Seniors and Their Beloved Pets Get Enough to Eat
Pets play an important role in the lives of homebound seniors, offering daily love and companionship. When volunteers reported seniors sharing their Meals on Wheels lunches with their pets – going hungry so their furry companion wouldn’t suffer – we knew it was essential to care for our seniors’ pets too.
That is why we introduced the aniMeals program in 2018. Once a month, volunteers bring a special delivery of pet food in addition to the daily, nutritious lunches for our seniors.
Caring for our seniors and their pets is one of the many ways Meals on Wheels is truly more than a meal.
Donate Pet Food
The aniMeals Program is 100% funded by donations, made possible through the generosity of people like you.
Supporting aniMeals is easy when you purchase and ship pet food directly from our Amazon Wish List or make a monetary donate online. Dog and cat food can also be dropped off to our office in Conroe. If you plan to hold a food drive or deliver a large donation, please contact Rhonda Darby, firstname.lastname@example.org or call (936) 756-5865.
