Senior pets looking for a great place to retire

Meet Harvey and Eunice. They both qualify for our special program, Seniors for Seniors. Thanks to a grant from the Daniel Foundation, Senior Citizens (60 years and older), approved for adoption at our shelter can now have their adoption fee waived when matched up with a senior pet (6 years and older). And keep in mind senior pets can make a great match for a person of any age. The “what you see is what you get” aspect can make it easier to decide how they may fit into your family dynamic.

Harvey (contributed)

Harvey is an 8-year-old Boxer mix. This boy is the epitome of cool, calm and collected. Harvey is relaxed on a leash, ready to snuggle for a nap, and eager to find a family that loves him just the way he is. He has a few moles that are due to age, but no worries, we do not charge extra for extra character.

Eunice (contributed)

Eunice (contributed)

Eunice is a 13-year-old short-haired cat. Between her name and her purr-fect personality, she became a favorite the second she arrived. Eunice is loveable and laid-back. She does prefer to be your only cat and would like a quiet home, with good people, good food and a great sunny perch.

Senior pets merit all the love and affection a puppy and kitten tend to elicit from us, and they certainly deserve a happy home and loving family for all their remaining years.
