Golden Friendship

Pets make a great companion for seniors. Through this program, senior citizens who are 65 years of age and older may adopt adult pets (one year and older) that have been sterilized and have been at our location for at least two weeks. There is no cost to the adopter.

Pets can provide an added sense of security and greatly increase our quality of life.  Our experience has shown that seniors who own and interact with pets are happier, healthier, less lonely, and more active.
