AniMeals on Wheels needs donations of pet food
AniMeals on Wheels, a program created by Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston to help homebound seniors feed beloved pets without having to sacrifice their own needs, is seeking donations of dog and cat food.
Donations are necessary for seniors to be able to keep pets in their homes.
"Limited income and mobility often force elderly pet owners to make the difficult choice of feeding themselves or feeding their pets," said Patricia Mercer, the president of the Houston Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, in a press release. "AniMeals on Wheels ensures that seniors can keep and provide the very best for their beloved friends."
Donations of dry and wet pet food can be dropped off from Monday, July 16 to Sunday, July 22 at the Houston SPCA, located at 900 Portway Drive, from 11 a.m. -7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday or at Interfaith Ministries, located at 3217 Montrose Blvd., from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Each month, more than 7,000 pounds of dog and cat food are donated to help more than 450 seniors and 1,000 pets.
"Every gift is a gift from the heart and helps a very vulnerable segment of our population keep their four-legged companions in their lives," said Andrea Fineman, communications manager for Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston.
