Meals on Wheels now include pets!

Good news for the needy who use Meals on Wheels. It was discovered the elderly were saving part of their meals for their companion animals because they couldnt afford to feed their pets. Now they can!

Thanks!

On my Facebook page I subscribe to No Kill Nation, No Kill Revolution, FixAustin, Austin Pets Alive, Ryan Clinton No Kill Advocate, Animal Wise Radio, Blind Cat Rescue and all the shelters and TNR groups I like to read about. Plus my rescue/ TNR friends send me stuff. Plus, like I donít obsess enough about cats I surf the web.. Sick hugh

I get the feeling most on CF arenít into No Kill movement yet but it is becoming a very big issue. Esp if you do rescue or TNR. Itís going to determine the direction of our countryís philosophy in our shelters and rescue organizations. The fate of homeless pets.

Thought this was going to be a story about meals on wheels serving dogs to the elderly...

I think you're wrong. I think you'll find 99% of the forum are for No Kill shelters.... if not everyone.

Many years ago my Mom used to deliver for Meals on Wheels. One lady had a little dog and when Mom arrived with her food for that day, the lady said to the dog "Look, Snookums, you are going to get chicken today!" Mom said it was all she could do to keep from crying in front of the lady. From that day on, Mom always took a can of dog food from our house with her to give to that lady for her dog when she delivered the meals. Mom did this to the day she was told the lady had died.

Glad to see the program is succeeding.
