BENEFITING: Meals on Wheels And More, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Apr 08, 2012
Most are aware that Meals on Wheels and More delivers meals to those who are homebound in our community. But what may surprise some is that Meals on Wheels really does More, much more, and one of the programs we are very proud to share with you extends to our four legged friends.
To us, taking care of clients also means watching out for their best furry, feathered, fluffy, frizzy, fuzzy, or fringy friends. That is why Meals on Wheels and More created the P.A.L.S. Program , a program designed to help clients care for their pets by assisting with pet food and veterinarian care.
For many of our homebound clients, pets provide much needed companionship that helps reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness. As one of our clients wrote to us, “God Bless you for thinking about our little pets. I love and adore my kitty more than anything or anyone on Earth. I couldn’t live a day without him.”
To spay/neuter and provide a cat with shots costs about $100 and for a dog about $130. All money raised on Crowdrise will go to these preventive veterinary care procedures to keep our clients’ best companions healthy and happy. So please join us in our efforts by donating to our P.A.L.S. program. We promise it will be more satisfying than eating a Snickers candy bar while popping bubble wrap.
