Meals on Wheels: Pets

Pets are loyal companions and help to reduce the loneliness and isolation that homebound seniors may feel. To help ensure more than 350 homebound seniors and their pets have access to nutritious meals every day, the City of Henderson has expanded the scope of its Meals on Wheels service to include the delivery of pet food. Food is needed for 140 pets, ranging from dogs and cats to birds and fish. The project is supported entirely by the generosity of community sponsors.
