Meals on Wheels: Pet Program

For many of our clients, pets offer 24/7 companionship. A pet may be the only “family” a client has.

In January 2009, we began providing pet food to clients needing assistance feeding their pets. The program arose after volunteers began reporting clients were sharing their Meals on Wheels food with their pets, thereby compromising their own nutrition and good health. Currently our volunteers graciously deliver food to 24 dogs and 36 cats on a monthly basis. We typically can provide one to two weeks’ supply of dog and cat food, sometimes more depending on our current stores of donated pet food. 

Continuation of these deliveries depends on community support and donations. Financial donations for pet food should be so designated. Our greatest need is for wet and dry cat food and wet dog food. We ask for unopened canned or dry dog or cat food that is not expired.  Cans should not be dented and bags should not have holes. Food can be dropped off Monday – Friday from 10 AM to 3:30 PM, or call the office to arrange for pickup.

If you wish to conduct a pet food drive on our behalf,

You must be a current Meals on Wheels client to participate in this program.

Our greatest need is for dry dog food and dry cat food.
