BROWARD MEALS ON WHEELS FOR PETS FOOD DRIVE
AT VCA HOLLYWOOD ANIMAL HOSPTIAL
November 14th through December 19th
Hospital Will Match Food Donations
VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital (VCAHAH) is proud to once again join Broward Meals on Wheels (BMOW) for Companion Animals to collect food for pets of homebound seniors throughout Broward County. Each year we are affirmed by the success of previous years’ food drives that this effort positively impacts our community. With even more support this year from our local purveyors, neighboring businesses and fellow Veterinarians we are once again able to match donations received and offer more locations for drop offs.
Donations of canned and dry food for cats & dogs made from November 14th- December 19th, 2015 will be deposited into BMOW for Pets’ food bank and portions will be matched by the VCAHAH*.
“Our partnership with Broward Meals on Wheels for Pets allows us to give back in a very tangible way to a community that has supported us for over 68 years. This year, our relationships with area Veterinarians and business has affirmed that sense of community and allowed us to have a larger reach to help this caring organization."
-Linda Ream, Communications Coordinator-VCAHAH
BMOW delivers pet food once a month to homebound seniors who need assistance taking care of their in-home pets. Pet food is provided through the generosity of community donations. The need for donations of cat food is in particular demand among BMOW clients.
“Each month, Broward Meals on Wheels for Pets uses over 800 lbs of pet food alone for the southern portion of Broward County. This food collection goes a long way to help feed the furry family members of the seniors in need here in Broward.”
-Bobbi Arnold, Co- Chair of Broward Meals on Wheels for pets.

Broward Meals on Wheels for Companion Animals started when volunteers began to notice clients sharing their meals with their pets. Senior on a restricted budget can have a difficult time meeting their own needs and often the needs of their companion animals can be neglected. With only the support of volunteers and donation this organization provides delivery of food for these loyal pets once a month to clients of BMOW.
