      PET FOOD DRIVE for MEALS ON WHEELS OF SOUTH FLORIDA
      MEALS FOR COMPANION PETS PROGRAM
      at VCA HOLLYWOOD ANIMAL HOSPITAL
      Celebrating over 70 years of serving our community.

      WHO/WHAT: VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital is proud to continue to support our local community charitable Meals on Wheels South Florida’s Meals for Companion Pets Program.

      “Each month, Meals on Wheels for Companion Pets uses over 800 lbs of pet food alone for the southern portion of Broward County. The VCA HAH food collection goes a long way to help feed the furry family members of the seniors in need here in Broward.”
      -Bobbi Arnold, Co- Chair of Meals on Wheels for Companion Pets.

      Now in our 7th year, VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital and the Meals for Companion Pets Program have partnered to host a community food drive for pets of homebound seniors in our South Florida. Throughout each drive we have enjoyed the partnership and grass root fundraising efforts of our local businesses, corporate partners and our community to raise thousands of pounds of food each year.

      The Meals for Companion Pets Program is 100% volunteer based. Each month they deliver pet food to homebound seniors who need assistance taking care of their in-home pets. Pet food is provided through the generosity of community donations. The need for donations of cat food is in particular demand each year.

      How can you help?
      Donations of canned & dry food for cats & dogs made from November 10th- December 15th, will be deposited into the Meals for Companion Pets food bank for monthly distribution to senior pet owners. As an incentive, portions of the donated food will be matched by corporate partners of VCA Hollywood to ensure yearlong support of these faithful companions.

For more information, please visit www.vcahollywood.com or call 954.920.3556.

      Meals on Wheels for Companion Pets (BMOW) started when volunteers began to notice clients sharing their meals with their pets. Senior on a restricted budget can have a difficult time meeting their own needs and often the needs of their companion animals can be neglected. With only the support of volunteers and donation this organization provides delivery of food for these loyal pets once a month to clients of BMOW. For more information visit www.bmow.org or call VCAHAH.

      Over the last 7 years we have collected over 22,000 lbs of food and over $5000 for this worthy effort.
