There's no debating the positive impact pets have on our lives. They lift our spirits in the darkest times, they love us truly unconditionally, they are our companions through thick and thin.
Senior pets and senior humans make a beautiful combination!
The Seniors 4 Seniors adoption program began in May of 2012 with the purpose of placing adoptable pets over six years old with pet lovers over 60 years old. Research shows that pets provide innumerable health, social and other benefits to the elderly. 90% of seniors polled say they are less lonely and much happier since adopting an animal.
As of April 2022, Senior 4 Seniors has found loving homes for 195 senior pets at Prince William County Animal Shelter at a cost of $17,985. $10,275 in adoption fees to Prince William County Animal Shelter, $7,415 in spay and neuter fees & $295.07 in other medical treatments. A total of 143 dogs & 52 cats found their forever homes through this program thanks to our generous donors.
