Jovian Concepts Pet Supplies Drive is On

Jovian Concepts is collecting pet supplies for the Central Maryland Meals on Wheels’ Kibble Connection through the Maryland SPCA. Did you know that many homebound Meals on Wheels clients would give up their own food in order to feed their pets? So that they don’t need to make that tough decision, Meals on Wheels coordinates quarterly deliveries of appropriate pet food from the Maryland SPCA to clients who own pets. The need is greatest for both dry and wet/canned cat food, as cats seem to be easy companions for seniors to care for. Please consider 1) dropping off cat food (dry or wet) at our Mellon Road office, 2) donating an item from the full wish list posted below, or 3) visiting the MDSPCA Amazon Wish List which delivers directly to the MDSPCA.

Donations will be accepted at the Mellon Rd office from May 21-June 10.
