Adopting and Owning a Pet
Pets make great companions and research has shown that pets can increase their owners' quality of life. A study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society concluded that independently living seniors with pets tend to have better physical health and mental well being than those without pets. Seniors with pets are generally more active, cope better with stress, and have better overall health.
of the benefits of owning a pet:
Adopting pets from shelters is a great way to help animals that need homes. There are various services that provide assistance to older adults looking to take in pets. These national organizations can help with some or all of the adoption costs and may provide assistance with necessary vaccinations.
Pets For the Elderly Foundation - Pays the fees at participating animal shelters
throughout the United States for seniors who adopt a companion dog or cat from
a participating shelter - this includes the adoption fee, pre-adoption veterinary
exam and spay/neuter.
(Progressive Animal Welfare Society) - Provides a "Seniors for Seniors"
program where mature cats and dogs (typically over 7 years of age) are placed
with qualified senior citizens who are 60 years of age or older. The PAWS "Seniors
for Seniors" program offers a special reduced adoption fee, and includes
many benefits to help seniors who are living on a fixed income.
Animal Nations - Helps ill or injured animals whose caregivers or rescuers
cannot afford the cost of the lifesaving veterinary care they need.
There are dozens of other local programs to help older adults find new pets. We have posted a useful list of some of the local organizations around the country on our web site. Click here.
Many cities require that pet owners register their pets and pay a one-time or annual fee. We have found that most cities offer discounts on the registration fees to qualifying seniors. Check your local city's web site for details.
Many city shelters and humane societies will also provide discounts on pet adoption, as well as necessary vaccinations or to have one's pet spade or neutered.
Don't forget that there are hundreds of veterinarians and animal hospitals that provide discounts to seniors and their pets. Check with a local vet or visit the SeniorDiscounts search area on our web site to locate veterinarians in your area.
