AWA’s Seniors for Seniors program waives adoption fees to match certain seniors pets with adopters ages 60+. It’s all about senior humans rediscovering the joys of having a pet in their lives.
Pet ownership is proven to reduce depression, loneliness and improve the overall wellbeing of the senior population. The quiet home of a senior is a great match for a gentle, calm senior companion and this programs leads to many perfect pairings.
