Through the generosity of Meals on Wheels America and PetSmart, KYC established our Pet Program to support older adults and their pets to live safely and healthily in our community. Pets provide critical social interaction for their owners, preventing isolation, depression, cognitive decline, and loneliness. Especially as the world has changed with COVID-19, pets offer a deep connectedness that benefits both pet and owner.
Please join us in supporting this important project! Give in honor of your pet or as a way to celebrate a furry friend to help ensure seniors in our community never have to chose between their own hunger and that of their companions.
