SOUTHERN AGRICULTURE AND DIAMOND PET FOODS CELEBRATE COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP WITH MEALS ON WHEELS OF METRO TULSA’S PAWS PROGRAM
(Pets Assisting Wellness In Seniors (PAWS) is a pet food program designed to support companionship animals of MOW’s homebound recipients. In doing so, it also ensures that their recipients maintain healthy diets without sacrificing their meal to protect their pet from hunger.)
Hundreds of dogs and their owners will flock to Tulsa on Saturday, April 30 and Sunday, May 1, 2022 at the Tulsa Expo SageNet Center – LL to compete in the Mid-Continent Kennel Club of Tulsa’s annual all breed dog show from 8:00 am to 5:00 PM each day.
This year’s show will highlight the community partnerships of Mid-Continent Kennel Club of Tulsa, (MCKC), Southern Agriculture and Diamond Pet Foods with Meals On Wheels of Metro Tulsa’s PAWS program. Diamond Pet Foods ships almost 5 tons of pet food monthly at a discounted cost to Southern Agriculture’s 27th & Harvard – Tulsa store for pick up by MCKC members and other MOWs’ volunteers. The volunteers bag and deliver the pet food to MOW’s homebound clients.
Two special events will be featured at MCKC’s dog show this year to raise funds in support of the PAWS program – Show N’ Go and Sanctioned B Match. Meals On Wheels Metro of Tulsa, Southern Ag and Diamond Pet Foods will be onsite to promote this essential service provided by MOW to the Greater Tulsa community.
