Our AniMeals program teams up with Meals-on-Wheels to deliver pet food once a month to the Senior Center for recipients who often are at risk of sacrificing their own nutrition to feed their pet companions. This also reduces the necessity of relinquishing their pet(s), which is akin to losing a family member and is especially depressing to our senior population.
In 2021 we were able to provide 165,706 meals serving 10 Senior Centers. That’s 1,116 participants with 2,476 pets overall.
“Pets are crucial to the well-being of home bound Seniors. Meals-on-Wheels clients rest at ease knowing they are receiving nutritious meals and FIDO is feeding their pets.” Nutrition Program Director
