Because Animals Matter in Hurricane Utah supports another program called “Kibbles on Wheels”. This program is in partnership with the Washington County Council on Aging and provides nutritious meals for pets to the aging population who may not be able to provide for their pets because of lack of money or transportation. BAM's Kibbles on Wheels program is striving to ensuring that clients will always be able to provide nutritious meals for their beloved pets. For many homebound individuals, a dog or cat is more than a pet; it can provide friendship, joy, and a reason for living. Studies show that animal ownership also lowers illness levels and mortality rates.
