Seniors for Seniors adoption program

The “Seniors for Seniors” adoption program is aimed at connecting mature cats and dogs with people 60 and over. This program offers seniors age 60 or older a 60% discount when adopting a senior cat or dog (age 7 or older).

The goal of the program is to help enrich the lives of both pets and people. Not only does adoption give a deserving animal a much needed home, the adopter can benefit from reduced loneliness and increased opportunities for exercise, socialization and companionship. Owning a pet also has health benefits, like lowering blood pressure and cholesterol.

Senior cats and dogs, while mature and well-socialized, are often overlooked by adopters because of their age. However, when well cared for, senior animals can be a source of love and companionship for many years to come.

Older pets are great for first-time pet owners or people who do not have the time or energy to deal with frisky puppies or kittens. Most senior animals are house-trained and likely have already received some obedience training. In addition, when you adopt a senior cat or dog, there are no surprises when it comes to his size or personality, making it easier to know if the pet will be a good fit in your home and for your lifestyle.
