Each month, the Citrus County PetMeals Program provides food to the companion pets of senior homebound clients who receive Meals on Wheels.
We are in great need of unopened bags of cat and dog food at this time.
The PetMeals program began when a very thin man receiving Meals on Wheels was only taking small bites of his food and then placing his food tray on the floor for a very overweight Chihuahua to finish the meal. When asked why he was doing this, he stated he did not have the money to buy dog food any longer and that he would rather go hungry than not feed his beloved pet.

A Crystal River man was sentenced to life in prison on Wednesday in the case of the 2019 Lewd and Lascivious Molestation of a Child under the Age of 12.
During the initial investigation into the claims against Mark Daniel, 44, the victim disclosed to a parent that Daniel had made the victim touch him in a sexual manner.
Former Citrus County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) Detective Bruce Arnold, now a Special Agent with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, was assigned to the case. After a thorough investigation, which included a forensic victim interview with the Child Protection Team, Arnold developed probable cause for Daniel’s arrest.
