Pets offer a sense of well-being and security for many of us. They are members of our family. Yet, if you are on a limited income, there may be times when it is difficult to provide the food your pet needs. Thanks to grants, donations and volunteers, there is a Kibble on Wheels Program* that offers pet food and other products, delivered by volunteers right to your door. To find out if you are eligible, please contact our Volunteer Services Manager.
