Ascott, a 12-year-old black Scottish terrier, has been Sean Mace's "buddy through thick and thin" -- including a heart attack three years ago that left Sean homebound and unable to work. "I call him King of the House because he's claimed certain pieces of furniture," he laughs. Meals on Wheels stepped in with meal assistance for Sean, but he'd never heard of a program for dogs -- that is until Rachael's Rescue began to send food and treats. "I am so grateful for their help," he says. "I can't imagine losing my companion."
