Decades of research have shown that pets positively affect our health, both physically and emotionally. This is particularly true for seniors.

Despite numerous benefits, pet ownership presents many challenges for older adults. The cost of veterinary care and pet food has sky-rocketed, making affordability difficult for individuals living on fixed incomes

SeniorPet helps clients defray the burdens of pet ownership by providing food, supplies and affordable medical care. The program runs on both donations and volunteerism, by enlisting community support to arrange for basic pet services and taking up collections to cover more expensive medical needs.
