The mission of Seniors for Pets is to assist financially-needy senior citizens with annual veterinary exams, vaccinations, and flea/tick and heartworm medications for their companion pets.
We believe a pet offers not just the unconditional love that keeps our spirits up, but also the responsibility that makes a senior's life important. They say that getting old is not for sissies and in today's world, "they" would be correct. As people age, they face so many challenges - from health issues to just trying to survive in an economy gone berserk. Many senior citizens are struggling to pay their bills and are cutting spending in any way possible. Those cuts often extend to their family pets. It may be as simple as switching to a cheaper pet food or extending time between veterinary exams and vaccinations. Or it may reach the ultimate sacrifice of relinquishing the pet to a shelter.
Seniors need their pets now, more than ever! Studies show that owning a pet lowers blood pressure and cholesterol, encourages seniors to get more exercise, helps with loneliness issues, and gives a senior a reason to get out of bed each morning. Seniors for Pets believes that no one should have to choose between keeping a beloved pet and paying basic living expenses.
