Food for pets

The Feb. 24 article, Meals on wheels catering to pets, brought a smile to my face.

How inspiring and wonderful that Meals on Wheels is providing not only meals for shut-ins, but food for their pets. Over the years, my family and friends have rescued countless dogs and cats. The joy they have given us cannot be measured.

Two years ago, I was undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer and the pain and loneliness in the middle of the night was eased by my little rescued Chihuahua, Chica. She slept by my side and brought me much comfort.

Bless the volunteers who make Meals on Wheels possible and for uplifting those who would otherwise be alone.

Love is a powerful thing and animals give it unconditionally.
