Pet Essentials Drive

We're partnering with Meals on Wheels Central Texas again to host a 3-day donation drive for their PALS program. See below for info on this great program & items needed at the moment.
 
WHEN: Tuesday September 22, Wednesday September 23 & Thursday September 24
TIME: 11a.m. -12p.m.
 
PALS (Pets Assisting the Lives of Seniors) provides assistance in caring for the pets of current Meals on Wheels Central Texas clients. A pet can provide much needed companionship and help to reduce the isolation and loneliness that many of the home-bound seniors and adults with disabilities we serve experience. As one client wrote to us, “God Bless you for thinking about our little pets. I love and adore my kitty more than anything or anyone on Earth. I couldn’t live a day without him.” The PALS mission is to keep clients and their pets together, living at home with dignity.
 
PALS provides free dog and cat food on a monthly basis to more than 450 pets owned by current Meals on Wheels Central Texas clients. Pets get the food they need and our clients, many of whom are socially isolated, benefit from interaction with our pet-loving volunteers.
 
Here is a list of items needed at this time:
 
Dog:
5.5 oz cans of Mighty Dog wet food
13.2 oz cans of Pedigree wet food
Purina Little Bites dry dog food (comes in 4lb and 16lb bags)
 
Cat:
Fancy Feast Pate (Non-seafood flavors)
20-25lb Clumping Litter (Any Brand)
Meow Mix Tender Centers and Hairball Control dry food (small bags)
