Program Description


“The mission of AniMeals is to keep pets in their home regardless of the logistical or financial challenges faced by our clients which include homebound and low-income elderly, disabled veterans and the homeless.”

“Overwhelming research has shown that pets are a real health benefit for their elderly owners. Compared to non-pet owners, those with four-legged friends at home have lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, have a better sense of security, are more active, experience less depression, and even live longer.”

Animeals provides free pet food delivery for the pets of the elderly and disabled.
