Senior Pets for Senior Citizens

Pay It Forward for Pets funds the adoption fee of senior pets being adopted by a person 55 years and older. The benefits for a senior dog or cat who finds a home with a senior citizen is obvious – and the benefits to the aging person are pretty impressive too! Healthcare professionals believe pet ownership for an aging person adds to their quality of life.

  • A loving pet lowers blood pressure and pulse rate
  • Senior pet owners experience 21% fewer visits to the doctor
  • Seniors experience fewer episodes of depression when a pet is present
  • Pets help to make friends and enhanced social opportunities
  • Seniors become more active and live more meaningful lives
  • Pets offer affection, unconditional love and non-judgmental acceptance
  • Pets help to ease the loss of a loved one and offer a sense of being wanted and needed
  • Pets eliminate loneliness and decrease feelings of isolation
  • Seniors with pets take better care of themselves
  • Pets provide a sense of security and safety for those seniors living alone
