Lubbock Meals on Wheels needs help with pet program

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock Meals on Wheels could use some extra help with its pet program.

The program has been in place since 1999.

Currently, 230 dogs and cats are regularly fed by Lubbock Meals on Wheels. So, pet food donations are always appreciated and needed.

Executive Director Lisa Gilliland said, "Because for a lot of our recipients are home-bound and that pet provides such valuable companionship... That little dog and cat is a big part of their family so if we can help them stay happy and healthy we are happy to do that."

If you would like to donate you can visit or call 792-7971.
