Annual Pet Walk

Our First Annual Paws for Our Cause Pet Walk Was a Success!


On May 13, 2023 at Rosedale Park, over 100 people came together

to celebrate our 50th Anniversary with this inaugural event. 

The goal of the event was to help Meals on Wheels of Mercer County celebrate our seniors and their furry friends.

Research shows keeping seniors together with their pets can help combat social isolation and improve well-being.

*240 lbs of pet food was donated at the Walk for our Pet Pantry!*

Why We Walked 

Homebound seniors and their pets are especially vulnerable. Imagine you are isolated at home and the only other living thing in your home is your pet.

We know the tremendous value a pet can bring to our lives. You would do anything to keep that “furry family member” alive.

This would include feeding them your meal before you feed yourself.

Sharing the only food they have is not good for the elder or their pet. This brand new event helps fund our efforts to continue

providing free pet food twice a month to our meal participants so neither go hungry!   

THANK YOU to our vendors for your support!
