~ from CAC Office on Aging

The CAC Office on Aging’s Feed-a-Pet program needs pet food to feed the pets of limited-income older adults in the Knoxville-Knox County area. Our need is great and we are in short supply. We serve 75 clients with 112 dogs and 113 cats.

Without the assistance of Feed-A-Pet, those enrolled in the program struggle each month to  feed their pets and sometimes go without food themselves in order to feed their furry friends. We have an immediate need for dog and cat food.
