Broward Meals on Wheels Food Drive Results are in!!

Results are in! This year’s VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital Broward Meals on Wheels Pet Food Drive has collected 4450 lbs of food and $2000, enough food to fill the bellies of our pet community for at least the next 6 months.

Local clients donated 3650 lbs of pet food and $900 in monetary contributions to our various collection sites. Through the generosity of our VCA vendors Zoetis, Hills Pet Nutrition, Purina, Trupanion Pet Insurance, Elanco and Virbac, VCA HAH donated an additional 800 lbs of food and $1100 delivering a total donation of 4,450 lbs of food and $2000 to the Broward Meals on Wheels for Companions Animal effort. These donations will support the pets of home bound seniors over the next 6 months.

We all know the powerful role that pets play in our lives. This companionship and undeniable love is what keeps us thriving. The same is true for our citizens who receive monthly aid. Broward Meals on Wheels (BMOW) for Companion Animals delivers pet food once a month to homebound seniors who need assistance taking care of their in-home pets.   The success of this food drive ensures that no pet is left hungry for months to come.

VCA Hollywood Animal Hospitals could not be more proud to partner with our local VCA’s and Pet Supplies Plus to get the word out about the work of this wonderful organization.

Anyone interested in volunteering to help deliver food to these pets in need can call Bobbi at 954-295-7709 or email her at stony12345@aol.com
