Helping Seniors and their Closest Companions

Senior PetCare provides eligible clients with assistance in taking care of their pets, helping to maintain the client’s ability to remain in their own home. Volunteers deliver pet food to clients’ homes, and the program also assists with veterinary care.

Long-term results

  • Keeping pets happy and healthy by assisting in pet care and maintenance;
  • Reducing the number of pets at animal shelters by helping seniors care for their pets;
  • Providing food for pets so seniors remain healthy by not sharing their own meals; and
  • Keeping seniors in their homes longer, thereby saving taxpayers money by preventing institutionalization.
