Thousands of nourishing meals were provided to animals in elderly homes last year. Special express delivery of pet food directly to the homes of needy animals living with senior citizens ensures that no loved and cared-for animal goes hungry. These pets enjoy nutritional meals and do not have to rely on table scraps. There is no charge for these services for qualified participants. For seniors interested in a service that allows us to take care of and adopt out animals after their human’s death, learn about our PAWS-itive Care program.
Who Is Eligible for the Program?
Senior citizens who live in Osceola, Orange, or Seminole County and who meet specific criteria, qualify for Home Delivered Pet Food Pantry. Participants are screened and approved through one of our partner programs: SENIORS FIRST, Osceola County Council on Aging , or Meals on Wheels.
What’s Included with Home Delivered Pet Food Pantry?
Once a month, home delivered pet food, is the core service of this program. However, depending on the amount of donations we receive, we sometimes also include healthy treats and toys for the animals. Basic veterinary services, including spaying or neutering of dogs and cats and routine vaccinations, are also free of charge for participants. Other medical services are available at a low or reduced cost. Contact our shelter for more information.
