Seniors for Seniors Adoption Program

This program places senior pets with senior citizens. The dog or cat gets a stay-at-home mom or dad to spoil them, and the individual gets an adoring and grateful pet whose expectation is to be the center of the person’s universe.

Not a bad trade.

 

Benefits to NARF

We can place pets who are older and generally less adoptable than most into loving homes as well-cared for, valued pets.
