Animeals program in Sagadahoc County receives $2500 from Meals on Wheels America Sagadahoc ADRC

Funding will help support Sagadahoc seniors and keep them together with their companion animals

Brunswick, Maine – Spectrum Generations is proud to announce that it has recently received a $2500 grant from Meals on Wheels America, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and funding. This funding is supported by a donation from the former Banfield Charitable Trust.

The funds will be used to support Spectrum Generations’ Animeals program in Sagadahoc County, Brunswick, and Harpswell, currently assisting 20 consumers with companion animals. The funding will also allow for the program to expand and meet consumer demand.

Spectrum Generations’ nutrition coordinator for the area, Casey Henson said, “This support will help ensure we are able to provide pet food to the consumers who already receive Meals on Wheels. We know the impact companion pets have for their owners – providing socialization and comfort, and it’s important that the people we serve continue to eat the nutritious food we give them and not share that with their pets. Providing appropriate pet food allows them to keep their beloved animals and both consumer and animal remain safe at home.”

Ellie Hollander, President & CEO for Meals on Wheels America said in a written statement, “While pets are invaluable companions to homebound seniors, positively impacting their health and well-being, they can also be a challenge to care for alone. The Meals on Wheels Loves Pets program enables organizations like Spectrum Generations to provide pet food and other necessary services to ease some of that burden and make it possible for local seniors and their beloved pets to stay together.”

In addition to wet and dry pet food, the funds will help purchase a commercial storage rack system and sturdy storage and delivery bags to ensure safe transport of the food.
