Reaching Out to the Senior Community
With Americans living longer and healthier lives, senior citizens make up a larger portion of the population. Many have pets but may need occasional assistance in caring for them; many who don’t have pets might benefit from a little furry company. Some shelters are reaching out to their communities’ elders, bringing them pet supplies and assistance, or—through animal visitation programs—affection and attention on four paws.
