Meals for Paws was formed as a way to help keep pets in their homes by providing supplemental food, litter and other basic necessities (as available) to local senior citizens.  Shelters and Humane Societies are often overflowing with animals, many of those whom have been surrendered as owners were unable to afford to continue to feed them. 
K9 Insights is proud to have become closely involved with Grafton County Senior Citizens Council.    By developing the program "Meal for Paws, a Worthy Cause",  K9 Insights has become one of the primary providers of donated pet foods for GCSCC.  The sole reason behind the program is to ensure every "Home Delivered Meals" delivery volunteer always has pet food on board the delivery vehicle.  It's a little known fact that meals delivered and meant for those in our community are often shared with or fed to the pets in the household. 

Our goal is to help seniors keep their pets with them and their families intact.  We are a 100% volunteer organization and operate on the kindness and generosity of others.

GCSCC develops, strengthens and provides programs and services which support the health, dignity and independence of older adults and adults with disabilities living in our local communities.

K9 Insights strongly believes in keeping pets in their homes and we feel offering this service is not only necessary, it's an important part of supporting our local community.  We have been graciously allowed to utilize the local business SAVES (Small Animal Veterinary Emergency Services 24 hours Pet Hospital) as the main donation drop off location. 

The initial Pet Food Drive took place at SAVES on April 9th, 2011 and produced over 1000 lbs of dry food and treats and over 800 cans of donated dog and cat food as well as treats.  It couldn't have been done without the amazing support received from the local community.
