Meals On Wheels West Launch Miss Lilly’s Pet Food Program:

Meals On Wheels West (MOWW) home bound clients with pets are set to benefit from a new partnership to provide pet food and vet care to their furry friends.

Named Miss Lilly’s Pet Food Program, this community partnership is between MOWW, Miss Lilly’s Trading Company, Centinela Feed and Pet Supplies, Gamma Plastics, and First Care Animal Health.

“Our new pet care program ensures that beloved pets are well nourished and eliminates the temptation for clients to share their Meals On Wheels West deliveries with their pets,” said RoseMary Regalbuto, President/CEO of Meals On Wheels West. “This way everyone is well nourished. It is my understanding that seniors who have pets live five percent longer and enjoy a higher quality of life.”

BeBe Flynn, CEO and Founder of Miss Lilly’s Trading Company, initiated the relationship with Meals On Wheels West and spearheaded the launch of Miss Lilly’s Pet Food Program.

Proceeds from the sales of her company’s cookies will provide funding needed for pets with special diets, vet visits and some medical needs of the client’s pets.

Chris Nakagawa, CEO of Centinela Feed and Pet Supplies, is proud to be associated with MOWW and Miss Lilly’s Trading Company to support this program and make it a sustainable ongoing partnership.

On an ongoing basis, Centinela Feed and Pet Supplies will provide bulk food to Meals On Wheels West for distribution to appropriate clients.

In addition, Johnny Rodriguez, of Gamma Plastics is donating containers to hold the bulk pet food.

First Care Animal Health will provide mobile medical care including shots and flea medication to clients’ pets.
