For our home-delivered meal clients who have pets, the Senior Paws program can provide dog and/or cat food. Occasionally, we may also be able to provide pet supplies. (kitty litter, pet food bowls, or treats)
The program is available at no cost to our home-delivered meal clients.
To sign up for Senior Paws, call our office at (940) 382-2224. We will need the home-delivered client’s name and address plus the number of cats or dogs and the approximate size of each animal. (small, medium, large).
The Senior Paws program volunteers deliver dog and cat food and supplies on the third Saturday morning of every month.
Yes, we accept donations at our office Monday through Friday between 9 am and 4 pm. We accept donations of cat and dog food as well as pet food bowls, cat litter, and treats. For large donations, please call ahead at (940) 382-2224 to ensure that we have space available.
We accept all sizes of unopened dog and cat food, but small packages (maximum 5-6 pounds) are preferred. Small packages are easier for our clients to handle and do not require repackaging before delivery.

If your city’s schools are closed due to weather, it is very likely that Meals on Wheels will not deliver that day. We also ask local news and radio stations to make a public service announcement, and post service interruption information on our social media pages. On inclement weather days, we encourage our clients to eat shelf stable or frozen meals.
No, we are unable to accept food donations.
