Seniors for Seniors Program

Our fondest memories and funniest stories often feature the family pet.  Regardless of our age, pets bring us joy, love, and companionship.  They inspire us each and every day, they positively impact our health and can change how we see the world.

Our Seniors For Seniors program can help bring a wonderful pet and companion into your home. Our Adoption Counselors help each adopter find the perfect match. Our team has specially selected wonderful animals exclusively for this program. Then, our Seniors for Seniors program offers qualifying seniors with tremendous benefits to help care for their new best friend.
