This activity is for all ages!


This activity is virtual and requires you to provide your own supplies. For Repackaging Pet Food, you will need bag(s) of dog and/or cat food, clear (for cat food) and/or blue (for dog food) plastic bags, and scoop etc. For Pet Toys, you will need old t-shirts or other fabric and scissors. Families who sign up for this event will receive a separate email with detailed instructions and further information about our nonprofit partner and how we can help! Feel free to do this activity when convenient for your family.


Let’s help our nonprofit partner Animeals on Wheels by repackaging dog and cat food and making pet toys at home so they can be delivered to help feed the pets of their Meals on Wheels homebound seniors! Volunteers can also make dog and cat toys if they would like to do so. Animeals ensures that the pets of homebound seniors are fed and cared for by delivering pet food and toys to them.

Supplies Needed for this Activity:

Any brand Dry Dog or Cat Food

Large tub/bin

Scissors or box cutter (to open bags)

Broom and dustpan (to clean any messes)

Scoops - you will need a 2 quart scoop like this one HERE.

Blue and/or Clear Plastic Bags - you will need 12+ gallon bags like the ones HERE or HERE.

Detailed instructions for repackaging will be sent to you after sign up! Animeals is also seeking bags of dog and cat food if you would like to deliver whole bags without repackaging them. You can also make dog and cat toys to be delivered to Animeals pets. Find instructions HERE to make dog and cat toys too!
