We all love our pets - and we understand that for some seniors who live alone - a pet is the difference between living with a furry friend who gives love, a sense of purpose and companionship each day - and living in isolation. Many on a fixed income struggle to meet the cost of food and care for a beloved pet.

Through our AniMeals program we are able to provide free pet food to our recipients. This helps ensure their priceless relationships remain strong and healthy.

Donations of food and funds are gratefully accepted to keep AniMeals growing strong along with our meal program, as we serve more of those in need right here in the Greater Summerville area. If you would like to be a supporter - please call our office to donate food or use the donate button on our website to make a contribution.

a meal and so much more...


In 2019 our "AniMeals" program was initiated by Kathryn Liberstein, a junior at Summerville High School. She was the current Miss Lowcountry Teen 2019 and interested in competing in the Miss South Carolina Teen. She challenged herself to create a community service project as part of her participation with the Miss South Carolina Scholarship program and the rest is history. What a blessing to watch the influence of a young heart on her community. She has since gone on to further her education and become a veterinarian where her passion for service will no doubtably continue. 

Since 2019 we have diligently worked through the details of our AniMeals programs, such as establishing a specific formula to properly meet each pets unique dietary needs. We have also gratefully strengthened our impact through local financial sponsorships, grants and donated product. Beyond Basic, a local non profit, picks up the pet food where the magic of assembly happens! Once everything has been properly measured and bagged our volunteers prepare for our monthly distribution. What a joy it is to have so many helping hands within our community come together. It truly takes a village!
