Citrus County Pet Meals Program Receives Large Donation of Pet Food

The Citrus County Meals on Wheels Pet Meals program provides food to over 400 homebound seniors each week. Many of these clients have companion animals. These pets are the only family many of the clients have. The animals provide unfaltering companionship to a senior who may otherwise feel isolated and alone. The program is run entirely by volunteers and funded with donations received from the community.

Citrus County is dedicated to helping seniors maintain their independence and quality of life for as long as possible. It was discovered that our clients were frequently sharing the food provided by the Meals on Wheels Program with their beloved pets. Other clients were spending their already limited resources on expensive pet food, often doing without medications and other items that they themselves needed. This compromised the nutrition, health, and safety of the client and the animal.

If you would like to make a physical or monetary donation to the Pet Meals program for Citrus County Meals on Wheels clients, or to learn more about the programs, please call (352) 527-5975.
