Pets have been proven to extend the lifespan, social life, and overall well being of elderly people which is such an incredible thing to bring into a lonely elderly persons life. But obviously we have our dogs health and safety as a priority.
As an organization, our ultimate concern is with the wellbeing of our pets. We would be happy to match you with a dog suitable for your lifestyle. For all applicants at or above the age of 75 we require a co-signer and contingency plan for any adoption. We do this to protect the pet that you will come to love and bond with in the event that a tragedy occurs. Please talk this over with your family or friends to determine what is the right plan for you. Let us know if you need any assistance creating a plan or if you have any other dogs of particular interest to you.
