Homebound to the Rescue

This program began as an extension to our Pet Food Pantry program that provides pet food to local food pantries. We found that in addition to pet food, elderly need assistance with basic pet care during these tough economic times.

Many of the elderly cannot afford to provide basic medical care for their pets and/or don’t have the transportation available to get their pets to a veterinarian. This program assists pet owners by providing the services right at their doorstep. By going to elderly housing areas, we are able to help the elderly to keep their pets healthy and up to date on vaccines. This prevents the elderly from having to choose between their pet and putting food on their table.

This program is made possible entirely through individual gifts and grants. If you would like further information on this program, please email us.
