Senior pets come to us from a number of sources, including shelters and owners who can no longer keep their beloved pet. We ensure each pet receives a complete medical exam, vaccinations, routine blood work including Heartworm and Tick bourne disease testing, Fiv/Felv testing for cats, spay / neuter, dental, and any other needed medical treatments. Pets stay in foster homes until we find their perfect forever home.
We do not believe that we are in competition with other rescue groups and shelters. We all have the same goal of helping animals in distress, caring for them, and finding them “furever” homes. We work together to network and cross post senior pets to find them a permanent home.
We believe that pet companionship is key to keeping our aging society young at heart. We will work to match senior dogs & cats with senior citizens, while considering the needs of both. To enhance the social skills of our adoptable pets, we visit senior care facilities.
We continue to grow our network of foster homes, including Senior Citizens to provide a safe and caring environment for pets in need while waiting for their forever homes. This is a win-win situation for seniors that would love a pet but cannot afford the expense. The foster home provides the love and daily care to a senior dog or cat in need. Paws For Seniors provides the food, pet meds and vet care while looking for a forever home. In some cases, our Foster Home providers may become “permanent” fosters.
For pets we rescue who are ending their time on earth, we provide loving and caring hospice care until their time to cross the rainbow bridge.
We work to bring awareness and educate the public on humane animal welfare issues.
