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

You know how life is when you have a best buddy, they will be there when you are sad, ready to snuggle if you want to snooze, and best of all, reassure you when your world turns upside down. Sister and brother Annie and Tony have been that kind of buddies since birth. Annie's dream home has only a couple of cats and maybe one dog, but most important on that list is lifelong friend, brother Tony. Annie and Tony were brought to us when their person had gathered a few too many pets. Annie gets along well with both cats and dogs (and people she knows well). Annie is declawed and, as a Senior Cat, her adoption fee is $25. Stop by soon and spend some time getting to know Annie and Tony, perhaps read them a story or two.
