Lambertville Animal Welfare (LAW) recently announced its new “Seniors for Seniors Program,” which matches loving senior cats to caring senior adopters (60 plus). The 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!
Seniors often live on a fixed income. Yet seniors may still want to adopt a pet. Studies have shown that pet companionship may actually improve senior citizen health and outlook on life. Lowered blood pressure and stress reduction are among the benefits of pet ownership.
Through our Seniors for Seniors program, seniors can benefit from the companionship of a senior cat without taking on the financial burden of veterinary care. For qualifying adopters, the adoption fee is waived as part of Seniors for Seniors, and all future health care will be arranged and paid for by Lambertville Animal Welfare (at our vets). If in the future the senior is unable to care for his or her cat, the cat can return to a foster home through LAW.
Carissa and Scooter are just two of our many sweet seniors available for adoption. Their owner lost her home and was living in her car with her cats, then was forced to surrender her beloved cats in order to move in with a family member. Carissa is a beautiful, petite dilute calico female, and Scooter is a large grey male. Both love people and would make wonderful companions.
Lambertville Animal Welfare is a group of volunteer residents dedicated to saving the lives of animals impounded as strays in Lambertville and surrounding municipalities in Hunterdon County. Through its partnership with the City of Lambertville, Animal Control Officer Nate Barson, other rescue groups, local Vet offices, and other local stakeholders, LAW strives to rescue animals in immediate danger of euthanasia and work together to find foster and adoptive homes for them.
