Volunteers providing food to elderly and poor people through the Meals on Wheels program began to notice that people were sharing their limited food with their pets, an organization called AniMeals was developed to feed their pets as well.
Meals on Wheels is a fantastic program, and should be funded to the hilt.
What this organization does is provide regular human contact, which helps stave off getting any wackier. They also can be the first to notice a problem, fall, unconscious, etc. For many, this is the only company they get, and they cherish every minute.
Now they have help to feed their pets.
