AniMeals gets donations out of protest

A protest over Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick’s appearance in San Diego against the Chargers on Nov. 15 will help feed the pets of homebound senior citizens.

The PETCO Foundation worked with Main Line Animal Rescue to raise enough money for 60 bags of dog food and 700 cans of cat and dog food, which was delivered Dec. 9 to Helen Woodward Animal Center for its AniMeals Program, which typically sees a drop in pet food donations during the holiday season.

“Pennsylvania-based Main Line Animal Rescue wants to make sure we never forget the abuse that took place in Michael Vick’s dog fighting operation,” HWAC spokesman John Van Zante said. “Here in San Diego, they’re working with our friends at the PETCO Foundation to help feed the pets of homebound senior citizens and, at the same time, remind people about the cruelty.”

Main Line Animal Rescue is holding similar events in each city where Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles are playing this season. In each city, Main Line encourages animal lovers and local groups to join the protest and to donate to a worthy animal welfare
organization. For more information, visit www.mainlinerescue.com.
