Meals on Wheels San Antonio meal-delivery volunteers noticed that our clients were sharing their meals with their pets. AniMeals is a donation-sustained service which provides monthly deliveries of pet food to clients who find it hard to maintain the nutrition of their companion animals. These meals are delivered by animal-loving volunteers every third weekend of the month.
Thomas E. Carlucci is a Meals on Wheels participant who also receives pet food from our AniMeals Program for his two beautiful companions, Missy and Pooky. Mr. Carlucci found these cats as kittens on the streets of his neighborhood and decided to give them a loving home. Since then, he has raised and watched these cats grow up. If you ask him, he will tell you that they are his kids. AniMeals has helped Mr. Carlucci feed his cats because he is on a limited income and the food that AniMeals provides gives him extra money to spend on his own needs. He is very grateful for the program and its mission to keep senior citizens with their furry companions.
What is AniMeals?
After realizing that, like their owners, the pets of many Meals on Wheels of San Antonio recipients were in need of nutritious food, Christian Senior Services launched "AniMeals", the program to provide pet food to nourish the pets of seniors.
