The Olga Graham Fund

The Olga Graham Fund graciously supports our Senior for Seniors program, helping seniors with limited incomes experience the joy of a pet. 

To qualify for this program, an adopter must be 60 or older, and adopt an adult animal from the Animal League.  The number of adopters assisted by the fund is limited, and participants will be chosen on a first-come-first-served basis, provided they meet the Animal League guidelines for eligibility. Please Contact Us to see if you qualify for this wonderful program.

Thanks to a grant from the Graham Foundation, the Olga Graham Fund may also be used on a more limited basis by seniors that want to receive the following benefits:

  • Discount flea and tick preventatives 
    • A maximum of $500 per animal for any procedure or diagnostic test which does not fall under the guidelines for a wellness exam (CBC/SMA, T4/FT4, UA).
