2015 Broward Meals on Wheels Food Drive for Pets!!

 November 14th through December 19th

2014 donations
VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital (HAH) is proud to once again join Broward Meals on Wheels (BMOW) for Companion Animals to collect food for pets of homebound seniors throughout Broward County.  Each year the success of this food drive provides a consistent resource of food to keep this organization fulfilling their commitment to our pet community.

With the support of many local groups, individuals and organizations last year alone we collected  nearly 5000lbs. for BMOW.

November 14th- December 19th, donations of canned and dry food for cats & dogs will be accepted at our practice and area business. A a portion of the donation will again be matched by the VCAHAH*.

“Even with the growth of out practice our commitment to community has not changed. Our partnership with Broward Meals on Wheels for Pets is a great source of pride for all of us at VCAHAH. We thrive on being a part of such a supportive community. We could not be happier  to participate in giving back."
-Linda Ream, Communications Coordinator- VCAHAH

BMOW delivers pet food once a month 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 among BMOW clients.
The quantity of food used monthly by Broward Meals on Wheels for Pets is around 800 lbs alone for the southern portion of Broward County. These food collections go a long way to help feed the furry family  members of the seniors in need here in Broward.”
-Bobbi Arnold, Co- Chair of Broward Meals on Wheels for pets.

Broward Meals on Wheels for Companion Animals 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.
