"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened."
Interfaith Ministries of Greater Houston (a United Way organization) strives to maintain such love by distributing pet food through its AniMeals on Wheels program to home-bound seniors that participate in its Meals on Wheels for Greater Houston program.
From 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, September 20th, and 9 a.m. to noon on the following Saturday, the organization will collect pet food at 3303 Main Street. For directions, click here.
This food will be delivered to Houston seniors on a monthly basis. The non-profit organization maintains that a $180 donation will feed a senior's pet for a year. To donate, click here.
The Meals on Wheels program delivers hot meals to Houston seniors twice a day, 5 days a week. Weekend meals are delivered on the last day of the week. IMGH initiated the pet food drive to discourage seniors from sacrificing their own meals or limited financial resources to feed their pets.
