Houston's Seniors Get Help Feeding Their Pets Amid COVID-19 Concerns

In partnership with the Houston SPCA and Hill's Pet Nutrition, the Houston Food Bank has been delivering dog and cat food to vulnerable seniors involved in its Senior Box Program during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition to pet food, the combined effort from the three groups is helping out with dog leashes, collars and pet beds.

In the case of Geraldine, her 21 year-old cat Daisy has special needs because of her age. "She’s old and needs a teaspoon of food every 3-4 hours. I know she can’t always have human food. I was worried she wouldn’t get way she needed. I appreciate the food,” said Geraldine.
