Catawba County Meals on Wheels recognizes how important pets are to our meal recipients. Pets provide companionship and help with loneliness. Studies show that pets may help seniors live longer, healthier, and more enjoyable lives. 30% of the Meals on Wheels recipients in Catawba County have a pet. Unfortunately, when there are difficult financial choices to make, recipients may purchase food for their pet in lieu of the things they need or even share their meals with their pet. Meals on Wheels looks to grants, donations, and volunteer help to sustain the Pet Food program. Pet food is available monthly.
