Pet Meals on Wheels for Seniors with Pets
Have you ever shared your food with your dog or cat? It’s something that many of us do even though we probably shouldn’t J. But, if we had no dog food or cat food, we’d probably give our pet some of our meal. That’s what many senior citizens were doing and this prevented them from getting the nourishment they so badly needed. And, their pets were still hungry.
A teacher at the high school, your boss, the clerk at the grocery store—people all over the world care for outdoor cats every day. We have “outdoor” cats in Wakulla County and we want to help them. The cats we are talking about are “feral” cats. Feral cats are domestic cats. Like pet cats. The difference is that feral cats have had little or no contact with humans, and so they are fearful of us and cannot be adopted. They have a home—the outdoors.

Paws of Wakulla hosts dog washes twice a year called "Pamper Your Pooch" to raise funds for vaccines and other necessary medications for shelter animals.
The Wakulla County Animal Shelter has extremely limited funds to support the sheer number of animals brought in each year. The sponsorship of adoption fees each month provides a great opportunity for families to adopt a shelter animal. This benefits the community as research shows that pets promote healthier families in the community, as they provide unconditional love and promote a sense of purpose and fulfillment that makes families proud the helped an animal in need.
