Tory (formally known as Frito)
I am so happy that Jennifer had asked me to foster Tory for the shelter. At first I thought it was only going to be for a few weeks but it was for a month. I was concerned for what if my dog, Duncan and Tory got along, well know I have Tory and Duncan and I couldn’t be happier. She makes you laugh all day long. Always jumping into shopping bags and running around the apartment with Duncan, he chases her and she chases him. Tory is such a love bug, always waiting for me at the door with Duncan when I get home. She has a purr that is so loud that I cannot fall asleep till she stops J Tory loves to cuddle with me and even Duncan. She still has not grown into her tail! Alexis
Kali (formerly Duchess)
Hi Jennifer… I just wanted to send you a picture of Kali (formerly Duchess). We are just loving her so much! It didn't take her too long to finally start venturing out of the bedroom and into the rest of the house. She loves to be with people…if you sit on the couch, your lap becomes prime real estate. My husband's lap seems to be her lap of choice. We've also discovered that she loves to chase the laser. She actually sits in a particular spot at night time and waits for it. Quite funny. Thanks again!! Patty Marshall
Hello! It's Tucker Curtis; I adopted Skiddie a few yearsago, and she is doing great! She has really come out of her shell, and is getting more social every day. I love it when she sleeps with me, and her purr is so cute; it's like motor! We are like best friends now.

Meals on Wheels
Like their owners, the pets who are cherished by millions of homebound seniors receiving Meals On Wheels services also need nutritious meals to stay healthy. Appreciating how important it is to both provide seniors and their pets with high quality nutritious meals, MOWAA created We All Love Our Pets (WALOP) – a national initiative that seeks to unite Meals On Wheels programs across the country in their efforts to keep seniors and their beloved pets well nourished. While some Meals On Wheels programs have created projects that make it possible for them to make special pet food deliveries to the seniors they serve, most lack the resources needed to integrate this important activity – keeping companion pets, sometimes a homebound senior’s only “family” member, well nourished and healthy – into routine program operations. Until MOWAA established WALOP in 2006, there was no national initiative for focusing attention on the vital relationship that exists between homebound seniors and their pets, or for building the financial resources needed to make pet food deliveries an integral part of the nutritional services local Meals On Wheels programs provide for homebound seniors.
