ANIMEALS SENIORS FOR SENIORS ADOPTION PROGRAM
Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando. Orlando, Florida, USA.
“Seniors for Seniors adoption program is all about senior adopters rediscovering the joys of having a cat or dog in their lives. The program places senior cats and dogs (typically over 6 years of age) with senior citizens who are 60 years of age or older.”
The Seniors for Seniors Adoption program works to match older adults with older pets.
AniMeals delivers free pet food, treats and pet toys to the homes of elderly.
Free veterinary services such as spay/neuter, vaccinations are provided for pets of older adults.
Seniors must be approved for the pet care assistance program.
Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando lists some of the benefits of adopting an older pet for elderly as improved physical and mental health, reduced depression. Senior animals are also generally gentler, calmer and already trained.
