Program Description


“The Seniors for Seniors adoption program, open to residents of Washington State, is designed to help senior humans rediscover the joys of having a cat or dog in their lives.”

PAWS Seniors for Seniors Adoption Program provides seniors with discounted pet adoption by placing senior cats and dogs with senior citizens (60 years of age or older.)

The PAWS Seniors for Seniors Adoption program works to match a pet which fits into a senior’s lifestyle and housing situation.

Senior pets are a good match for older adults as they are generally calmer and already trained.

Adopting a pet can provide seniors with improved physical and mental health and lowered levels of stress loneliness and depression.

PAWS also has a low-income spay/neuter program.

In addition to pet adoption, the organization also focuses on animal rehabilitation, education and advocacy.
