  • Retiring Together

The Senior for Senior Program or Retiring Together was developed to allow older individuals to still have the companionship of an animal when they may feel they are too old to start with a new companion animal. Many times, older individuals feel that they may not be able to care for an animal for its entire life having to surrender the animal at some point.

By matching an older or special needs animal with an individual on a long-term foster basis, if it becomes necessary to surrender the animal the animal will go back to the rescue from which it was obtained.

Sometimes older animals, like humans, need medicine which may require an expense they simply cannot afford. This program, based on income qualification, may pay for these expenses. Food may also be provided based on income and qualification.
