Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
to provide nutritional support for the pets of homebound citizens.
Most homebound individuals are somewhat isolated from the outside world. Pets can be very important to their well-being. Sometimes pets are their only companions. For these people, owning a pet can be especially meaningful; it provides companionship, occupies their time in a meaningful way, and may even give a reason for living. The daily responsibilities of pet ownership, however, can be difficult. We have noticed that many Meals on Wheels clients feel a need to share their meals with their animals because they are unable to provide appropriate pet food. When this occurs neither the person nor the pet receives adequate, healthy nutrition. Meals 4 Paw Stars intends to help by ensuring that quality, nutritious food is available for the pet. The goal is keeping people and their companion pets together by eliminating some of the logistical and financial impediments to proper pet care and helping make a healthier life for the homebound person and their pet.
