Citizens for Animal Protection honored Northwest Assistance Ministries (NAM) on Sunday,
June 27, 2021, at the Mr. Magoo Sunday Funday event in the Bayou City Event Center. NAM
currently serves nearly 900 seniors weekly through the Meals on Wheels program and has
massively expanded the service to aid the pet companions of our clients. It is typical for seniors
to withhold information regarding their pets in fear of them being taken away. Volunteers of
NAM began noticing more pets while out on the Meals on Wheels routes, which led to the
concern of many of the seniors sharing their meals with their pets.
Pet food donations are always needed to keep this initiative going. If interested in donating, drop off your pet food donations at NAM’s Joanne Watford Nutrition Center Monday through Friday from 9 am-3 pm. All donations will be greatly appreciated by NAM and our clients.
