Each month, the CAC Office on Aging’s Knox PAWS and Feed-a-Pet programs provide almost 3,600 pounds of pet food to 112 dogs and 113 cats owned by 75 low income seniors in the Knoxville-Knox County area. Our supply of dog food is critically low!

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.
