SENIORS FOR SENIORS
WHAT IS THE SENIORS FOR SENIORS PROGRAM?
Research tells us that companion animals can help improve physical and mental health. By adopting and spending time with a pet, you can experience the benefits of lowered stress levels and blood pressure. Pets provide friendship for lonely individuals, and open up opportunities for interacting with others which an older person may miss if family is far away.
The company of a beloved pet has been proven to reduce depression. The quiet and doting home of a senior citizen is the perfect match for an older animal looking for a new home. Senior animals offer gentler, calmer companionship.
Our Seniors for Seniors program matches animals over 11 years old with people over the age of 60.
Senior adoption benefits include:
Free grooming every six months
No adoption fee for approved applications
