Enriching the Lives of Pets and Pet Owners
Our Pet Portions – PetKare programs help our seniors take better care of their pets by providing free cat or dog food as well as vouchers for veterinary care.
Pet Portions Programs
The Pet Portions program began in 2006 with the assistance and collaboration of SPCA Cincinnati and IAMS Corporation. Last year, 23,000 pounds of pet food was delivered to Meals on Wheels clients’ dogs and cats.
Vouchers for veterinary care are available to Meals on Wheels clients and can be redeemed at participating veterinarian offices including: Banfield Hospital, Glenway Animal Hospital, and the United Coalition for Animals (UCAN).
“It’s the best gift I ever got in my life . . . I feel rich . . . I’d do without food myself for my cat.”
“I am very grateful for the pet food because it keeps my cats happy and healthy, and when they are happy, I am happy too.”
“I don’t know what I would have done. The people at Wesley Community Services were so very nice to me and my dog. I am grateful for Pet Portions.”
