Other Ways to Give

AniMEALS Pet Food Program

Our AniMEALS program helps provide pet food and basic vet care for our meal recipients' pet companions.  Pets provide comfort and companionship to seniors who live alone or are socially isolated.  It is often difficult for seniors to grocery shop or get heavy bags or cans of pet food into their homes. Thanks to pet-loving donors, we can provide pet food and vouchers for rabies vaccinations, wellness checks, and grooming when needed.

Checks may be made out to Meals on Wheels Rowan.  Please note "Pets" on the memo line of your check.

*Funds that are donated for senior meals are never used to provide food or vet care for pets.
