CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - PRESS RELEASE:

On Saturday Meals on Wheels of Cheyenne in partnership with the Cheyenne Dog Food Company, LLC, Dr. Elsey’s and Meals on Wheels of America, successfully launched the new AniMEALS program. AniMEALS is a pet supply delivery service for clients of Meals on Wheels of Cheyenne.

The pet supplies are picked up from the Cheyenne Dog Food Company located at 801 W. Pershing Blvd. between 10:00 am – 11:00 am every third Saturday of the month and delivered throughout Laramie County.

“It gives us great pleasure to partner with Meals on Wheels of Cheyenne to provide quality pet food to Laramie County residents,” stated Cheyenne Dog Food Company Owner Jenessa Washburn.

“More often than not, a devoted animal lover with limited access to food will feed their hungry pet before they feed themselves,” said a Meals on Wheels of America representative. “Pet assistance programs have become an increasingly common extension of Meals on Wheels’ ‘more than just a meal’ offering, because we know that there are myriad health and wellness benefits linked to animal ownership and the companionship and sense of purpose pets provide to people.”

Mat Brost, the Marketing Director with Dr. Elsey’s who is providing all of the cat food and litter for the AniMEALS program stated, “We’re excited to partner with Meals on Wheels to help support Cheyenne’s residents and their pets!”

“We’re so grateful to provide this new service to our clients and their companion animals,” expressed Executive Director of Meals on Wheels of Cheyenne Stephanie Freeman. “We know how much their pets mean to them and we are excited to have them as part of the Meals on Wheels of Cheyenne family!”

Laramie County residents who are Meals on Wheels of Cheyenne clients can sign up for the program through the website at www.mealsonwheelsofcheyenne.com or by calling the office Monday – Friday 6:30 am – 2:30 pm. People interested in volunteering can also sign up on the website at www.mealsonwheelsofcheyenne.com/form/volunteer-application.

Community members are encouraged to stop by Cheyenne Dog Food Company to donate pet supplies to the AniMEALS program.
