Seniors for Seniors

"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened"

- Antole France


In an effort to promote our mission of supporting the human-animal bond, we recognize the benefits of matching senior animals (8 years +) with senior citizens

(55 years +) in our community.

Senior pets offer many perks:

  • Personality is established-what you see is what you get!

  • Need less exercise

  • Less of a long term commitment 

Senior pets are often overlooked in a shelter setting where younger, more exuberant animals catch adopters eyes.  To try and give senior pets a competitive advantage, we are offering these marvelous companions at a reduced adoption fee.  Please see below for senior to senior pricing.

DOGS >8 years: $65 (+ $12 dog license)

CATS  >8 years: $15


9 year old

Now is your chance to be able to walk into your house and say, "Lucy, I'm home! Lucy here loves to be by her people and keeps a watchful eye over her loved ones. She is a laid back senior cat who is looking for a calm home with a few quiet places for her to call her own. Lucy would prefer being your only pet, but could live with another mellow cat who will be respectful of her space. Lucy spends her days by the window watching people as they go on with their day. She loves treats, catnip and lots of cuddles! If you would like to give this sweet girl a home, give us a call to schedule an appointment today!
