Stray Rescue is pleased to offer a new program that will enrich the lives of St. Louisan's who are at least 60 years young as well providing peace of mind and security for some senior dogs who are a minimum of "7" years of age.
The inspiration for this program came to Randy Grim recently when he adopted a dog to his 68-year-old mother, Mary Ellen. Her questions and concerns were so valid that it made Randy realize that many wonderful older dogs and seniors are missing out on the wonderful companionship and love a pet can bring to their lives. Since many senior citizens are on a fixed income, assistance with fees and food is a real benefit. Older dogs are often harder to place yet they are a perfect match for a senior citizen who may not to be able to control a very active, playful dog.
If needed, assistance and follow up care from a Stray Rescue professional will be made available at all times. As always, Stray Rescue will take the animal back if unforeseen circumstances occur or the animal outlives its guardian. A starter kit of dog food, bowls and toys will be provided as well.
The Seniors for Seniors Program is comprised of two separate programs, one benefiting the senior citizen and the other for the senior dog.
If you qualify and are interested in participating in this program, please fill out an online application and put the word SENIOR after your name. Once your application has been received and processed, someone will call you. Thank you for helping a canine senior citizen.
