Meet 3-year-old pretty black and tan longhair 'Scooby Doo' and his human, 74-year-old Evelyn Smith, who hail from Bartow, Florida. On a limited income and unable to drive, Mrs. Smith benefits from many local services for the elderly, and now Scooby Doo does too thanks to the SPCA and the Polk County Elderly Services. Excerpt from News Chief:
Through the Animeals Program, pet food collected by the SPCA is distributed through the Fellowship Dining and Nutrition Program, which includes congregate dining and home delivered meals. Pet owners who attend the Fellowship Dining, like Smith, are eligible to have food delivered to their home.
"Scooby Doo is precious to me. He's meant so much to me as a companion," said Smith, who has been alone since her husband died six years ago. "He's been such a blessing to me."
