“March for Meals” PetMeals Program Feeds Seniors’ Companions

By Florida's Original NatureCoaster™ Posted on March 7, 2019

Each month, the PetMeals Program provides dog and cat food to the companion pets of senior homebound clients who receive Meals on Wheels.

The PetMeals program began, as a national program, when it was noticed that a very thin man was only taking small bites of his food and then placing his food tray on the floor for a very overweight Chihuahua to finish the meal.  When asked why he was doing this, he stated he did not have the money to buy dog food any longer and that he would rather go hungry than not feed his beloved pet.

The PetMeals Program is 100 percent donation-based, volunteer-driven program that provides dog food and cat food to our senior homebound clients.

Do you have a pet who is a member of your family?  Do you love animals? The PetMeals Program is seeking help from pet lovers throughout Citrus County.

If you are able, please donate unopened bags or cans of dog or cat food to your closest community center or a monetary donation can be mailed to:

Citrus County BOCC
Citrus County PetMeals Program
2804 W. Marc Knighton Ct. Key #3
Lecanto FL 34461

Any contributions are accepted and appreciated.  For more information on how to help, or locations to make food or monetary donation, please call. (352) 527-5975
