Our “Love on a Leash” Pet Program provides healthy food and more to our clients’ pets.

pet programMany of our clients are home-bound. Visits from our volunteers serve as a source of contact for clients. Beyond this friendship, pets also provide companionship and joy. We often see clients sharing their meals with pets. This results in poor nutrition for our clients and their pets. Our pet program aims to eliminate this problem.

Some things we are able to provide our clients and pets are:

  • Pet food
  • Treats
  • Toys
  • Bedding
  • Leashes
  • Basic veterinary care
This pet program is made possible by our sponsors:
Enchantment Pet Resort wellness food for pets banfield charitable trust


Volunteers can contact Jane House, Program Director, for more information. Current volunteer opportunities:

  • Packaging volunteers. Meet once per month at Meals on Wheels of Albuquerque headquarters to organize food into containers.
  • Delivery volunteers. Pick up pet food containers from Meals on Wheels of Albuquerque headquarters and deliver them to clients once per month. Delivery volunteers must provide their own car, gas and be able to lift a minimum of 25 lbs.
