Thanks to Hendersonville Kennel Club (HKC) members, homebound seniors with pets in Hendersonville, North Carolina are now getting dog and cat good with their regular Meals on Wheels deliveries. The club's work was recognized recently by the Times-News Online.
HKC members purchase pet food at a discount from PETCO and make sure that food is available for Meals on Wheels drivers. The program makes about 200 overall daily deliveries in the club's area and a quarter of those deliveries include pet food.
Without this help, seniors might have to use their own food to share with their furry friend or give up their pets altogether.
Hendersonville Kennel Club funds programs like the Meals on Wheels deliveries with proceeds from the annual Blue Ridge Classic of the Carolinas Dog Show Cluster. At the show this May 23rd, a Meals on Wheels associate will help present the Best in Show trophy.
