Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - Meals on Wheels is a fairly well-known organization which delivers meals to senior citizens who may be unable to get out for their own food.

But did you know some volunteers also deliver food for pets?

The agency's Rochester branch teamed up with the Rochester Rhinos Tuesday to raise awareness for that aspect of the program.

After a nationwide survey, Meals on Wheels found some people had been sacrificing their own food to feed their pets.

Right now, Meals on Wheels only delivers dog and cat food to pet owners in the City of Rochester. However, they are looking to expand.

The Rhinos' "Bark At The Ballpark" game is coming up on Saturday, August 26. At the game, $5 from each ticket will go toward the Meals on Wheels pet food program.

Donations can be brought to the game, as well. More information can be found here.
