Wheels for Wags

As part of the Meals on Wheels program, Wheels for Wags provides free pet food for all clients with animals. The program originated when volunteers noticed that many seniors were feeding their pets from their own meals.

The goal of Wheels for Wags is to keep our clients together and happy with their pets by providing companion animals with healthy and nutritious food. Wheels for Wags ensures that pet food is provided so that the owner doesn’t need to worry about how to obtain or afford nutritious food for a pet that may be their only companion.

We are always accepting donations for more dog and cat food for our clients’ pets. If you are interested, please email us at info@vantageaging.org.
