Willing hearts & rolling wheels: Couple volunteers for Meals on Wheels; more help needed



“It was part of what they did with Meals on Wheels,” Liz said. “They discovered that so many of the Meals on Wheels people had pets, and they would give their food to their pets because they didn't have enough money to buy pet food. So what they started doing was delivering pet food for once a month. John and I did that for several years.”

After the couple relocated to the peaceful Piney Woods, the two began looking for local ways to continue their service.

“We were familiar with the program already when we came. I think I just saw an ad in the paper that they needed volunteers,” Liz said.

And that’s how it all began.

The horses just happened to be in right place at the right time, and have thus established themselves as a regular stop on the two animal- and people-lovers’ route.

But remember, it’s still a secret.
