Beginning May 26, Austin residents may help deliver pet food and supplies to area seniors through a donation drive at The Arboretum in Northwest Austin.

The Arboretum has partnered with Meals on Wheels Central Texas to gather supplies to donate to the nonprofit organization’s Pets Assisting the Lives of Seniors program. That program provides assistance in caring for pets living with seniors who are clients of Meals on Wheels, according to the organization.

“We really love animals here, and our stores are so pet-friendly,” said Angela Garza, marketing director for The Arboretum. “We were looking to partner with really great organizations within Austin, and Meals on Wheels was looking for a partner to get pet food and essentials.”

Through May 28, residents can donate specific pet food and supplies to Meals on Wheels in the parking lot in front of Lamps Plus, located at 10000 Research Blvd., Ste. 133, Austin.

Meals on Wheels is asking for more than a dozen specific dog food, cat food and cat litter items. A full list of requested items can be found on The Arboretum’s website, which can be found here.

Garza said this donation drive is the first such event The Arboretum has hosted during the coronavirus pandemic and added the development is looking to continue to partner with Meals on Wheels on charitable events in the near future.
