SPCA, Meals On Wheels Delivers Pet Food To Those In Need


The Brandywine Valley SPCA (BVSPCA) has teamed up with Modern Maturity Center, Inc. (MMC) to deliver pet food to families enrolled in the Meals On Wheels food delivery program. On Thursday the two organizations delivered human and pet food to 35 families in the Dover area.

“Now more than ever, it’s imperative that we find as many avenues as possible to reach pet families in need,” said Adam Lamb, BVSPCA CEO. “We’re grateful to the kind folks at Meals On Wheels for recognizing pets as an important part of the families they serve.”

Yesterday’s distribution included a one month supply of food per dog and/or cat in a home, as well as any needed pet supplies, such as leashes or collars. A total of 1,330 pounds of pet food was delivered. This is in addition to the more than five tons of pet food distributed to families in need from the BVSPCA campuses since the start of the pandemic and the four truckloads of pet food sent to other shelters to support their pantries. (The BVSPCA has expanded its standard pet food pantry to be accessible anytime during shelter open hours: Tuesday-Friday 12pm-6pm, Saturday-Sunday 11am-5pm.)
