S4S (Seniors For Seniors) Program
Cats 5+ adopted to 55+ for $5 to qualifying individuals + Fostering program.
Older cats are treasures who are infinitely less trouble and less underfoot than kittens, yet they are more difficult to adopt. The life of many a loyal older cat has been ended at the hands of a stranger in a shelter - after death, illness, or tragic financial circumstances of a pet owner. Many senior citizens are active in their retirement and have the time, finances, desire, and love to share with these adoring grateful pets, yet many are not adopting. They may feel they are being responsible by not taking on a pet that would be left behind if something happened to them. Many of these folks could provide for a pet, but some may need help occasionally with things like transport to veterinary appointments or fostering if they are hospitalized.
The companionship of these “throw away” animals could greatly increase the quality of life for many seniors who would love to have a pet, but are afraid of the responsibilities. Sharing once lonely time with a senior feline can lower blood pressure, provide physical and mental health benefits, and provide a strong loving bond. Noble is the purpose of creating a loving home for an older pet who would otherwise be euthanized and forgotten.
