“Helping seniors and their pets.” – Cindy’s Pets

Posted by on Feb 6, 2014 in Adult Living, Community Spotlight | 0 comments

“Helping seniors and their pets.”  – Cindy’s Pets

It has been noted that many seniors, while participating in the “Meals on Wheels” program in Pasco County, often give a portion of their delivered meals to their beloved pets. These companion pets are frequently a homebound senior’s only “family” member, and the pet’s well-being is naturally very important to them. Our goal is to provide good nutritional food for the animals, thereby enabling the elderly to enjoy their own meals with the knowledge that their pet is also being taken care of. Genesis School and interested parents and friends...

Art For A Cause – Blooms {HANDMADE WREATHS}

Iwas always into the arts, I have dabbled in virtually every medium. Making wreaths was always enjoyable to me, so I started making them again for the upcoming holiday season.

They have a teenager at home and recently had their water shut off. When I visited, they had virtually no food in their cabinets. I started a fundraiser for them and thanks to the help of generous people, we...

Animal Attraction: People and Their Pets

If you’ve ever loved a pet, you know the kind of joy animals can bring. Why is it that we love our pets so much? Why are these relationships so important? To put it simply: because they make us happy. Have you ever noticed how much easier it is to make a pet happy than a human? When we give our pets their favorite food, or a scratch behind the ears, they are radiantly happy. They love to see us when we come home at night. Their love for us is a less complicated, pure joy than what we encounter with humans. There is something deeply...
