Pets for the Elderly Foundation

The most serious disease for older persons is not cancer or heart disease - it's loneliness. Pets offer affection, unconditional love, fight loneliness, and can help ease the loss of a loved one. The Pets for the Elderly Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit charity that pays the fees to participating animal shelters throughout the United States for senior citizens (age 60 and over) who adopt a companion dog or cat — including pre-adoption veterinary exams and spay/neuter, if part of the adoption fee, from one of our 52 participating shelters in 29 states.
