Have you heard about our special adoption program, Seniors for Seniors? The program is available to adults aged 60 or older who would like to be matched with one of the shelter’s eligible cats, selected by our knowledgeable staff. The cats in the program are aged three or older; or have been in the shelter more than a year; or are shy or withdrawn in a shelter setting. We are offering a discount of 50 percent off the adoption fee. Cats will be spayed or neutered and up to date on routine shots. This is a great opportunity to help both cats and people find the friendship they crave.
There are many reasons why adopting an adult cat is a great decision, especially for an older person. Adult cats are generally calmer, already trained, and their personalities are well developed. The devotion shown by older rescue cats is extremely rewarding. A cat can provide loving companionship and an opportunity for a person to interact and bond, especially when their family is far away. Having a pet helps reduce stress and can improve one’s mental and physical health.
Our featured pet this week is Holly, a Boston Terrier/Whippet mix. This little lady was rescued from a “high kill” shelter - at the time we received her, she only had a few hours left to live. Holly has a beautiful dark chocolate coat and soul-searching brown eyes. She is nervous around other dogs but our shelter staff are working with her to become more comfortable around the. Holly has excellent leash manners and is very neat in her kennel. We believe she is under two years old. Holly is here waiting to show you what second chances are all about... please stop by and meet this sweet girl!
