“Seniors Love Seniors” Adoption Program

Age is just a number. No matter what your age is, a pet can help you feel young at heart…and we all know love can be found at any age! Our WCGHS matchmakers, will help you find your match made in heaven with our new “Seniors Love Seniors” adoption program. Seniors, aged 60 and over, will be matched up with a senior pet and pay a reduced adoption fee.

Studies have shown that having a pet will help to improve both physical and mental health. Pets have even been known to lower a person’s stress level and blood pressure! And for some, the companionship a pet offers also helps reduce depression and anxiety.

This program also helps senior pets! Unfortunately, seniors get overlooked in shelters because many people are looking for younger pet. The truth is, seniors are awesome! They are mature, litter box trained and their personality is known. For a senior, this is a bonus because bringing home a senior pet can mean more loving and snuggling and less work! For us at WCGHS, we see matching up a senior with a senior as a win-win. Our older pets can find love and a forever home, and seniors will reap the mental and physical health benefits from having a wonderful animal companion.

WCGHS has a select group of senior pets that are available for adoption through our “Seniors Love Seniors” program. For anyone 60 years of age or older, the adoption fee for senior cats is only $25, and senior dogs just $50! And they come vaccinated, spayed/neutered, microchipped and treated for parasites.
