August is For AniMEALS

Dear Friends,
Thanks to you “August is for AniMEALS” has been amazingly successful over the past three years. This year, Meals on Wheels is partnering with Faithful Friends Animal Sanctuary to share your gifts of support for dogs and cats. Pets provide comfort andcompanionship to many citizens including our seniors who live alone or are socially isolated. Faithful Friends Animal Sanctuary provides a no-kill sanctuary for homeless and rescued dogs and cats as well as medical care and vaccines. They educate the community about responsible pet ownership and place animals with owners who will love and care for them. Meals on Wheels also provides pet food and basic veterinary care for the pet companions of senior meal recipients.

The goal for “August is for AniMEALS,” benefiting Meals on Wheels and Faithful Friends is to raise two tons of pet food and twenty thousand dollars in donations. All pet food donations and monetary contributions will be shared equally between Faithful Friends and Meals on Wheels. The monetary contributions will provide wellness checks, grooming, spay and neutering, medical care, and vaccines. We are incredibly excited about this partnership and with your help, we will continue to serve the pet companions of homebound seniors and the fuzzy buddies in Rowan County!
