Pet Food Assistance: AniMeals, a donation-sustained service, provides monthly deliveries of supplemental pet food to clients who find it hard to maintain the nutrition of their furry companions. Each month we distribute over 5,000lbs of pet food to more than 600 pets. Volunteers deliver pet food the third Saturday of every month and provide another wellness checks on seniors, further enabling their independence.
Veterinary Care Assistance: AniMeals provides access to and payment for veterinary care for pets of current Meals on Wheels San Antonio clients. We help keep our clients' furry companions healthy with the following veterinary services: wellness exams, vaccinations, spay/neuter, and flea prevention. Unfortunately, we are unable to assist with emergency vet visits.
Pet Care Assistance: We aim to support clients who cannot care for their pets due to poor eyesight, injuries, or hospitalization. Our AniMeals volunteers assist clients in caring for their pets through dog walking, temporary fostering, and transportation for grooming services. Volunteers care for these pets for a set period of time as needed by the client.
Individuals who actively receive Meals on Wheels in Bexar County and have companion animals in their home can qualify to receive pet food through the AniMeals Program.
