I run the pet program for Meals On Wheels West which helps feed the pets of our homebound and often low income clients. We don't yet have the resources to help our clients with vet visits, but one dog was in such pain that I had to do something. "Princess" had the worst dental disease that the vet had ever seen so I tried to raise enough money for her surgery. I was so relieved when Red Rover gave us a grant to cover the gap in our fundraising effort. Princess had to have most her teeth removed but is eating well and is FINALLY pain free! Her elderly owner cried with joy when she found out that we could help. It wouldn't have been possible without Red Rover.

Meals On Wheels West

I started as a volunteer 14 years ago and became so devoted to the organization that I became a board member. Volunteering for MOWW was the most fulfilling thing I had ever done in my life. The impact I made from sharing a few minutes with a homebound person gave me goosebumps on a regular basis. I am now enjoying running the pet program which started with a grant from Miss Lilly's Trading Company. It pays for specialty food and some vet care such as flee medication and check ups. We also get a generous amount of food donated from Centinela Feed and the pets seem to love their Lotus brand food.
