Senior for Senior Foster Program

The PAWS ‘Seniors for Seniors’ program matches people 60 and over in the Creston area with older pets. These matches usually work out well because older pets are trained, calmer, and quieter than younger animals, so they better fit the lifestyle of an older person.
 
Older adults may not want the commitment of a pet but have the room in both their heart and their home for one. Senior pets can sometimes be harder to adopt because of their age or because they also have special needs, so this is also a win-win for the pet.
           
The program matches a senior pet with the applicant. PAWS covers the medical expenses and special needs items.
 
In turn, we ask that:

  • if the cat is an indoor cat, it always be kept indoors
  • you let PAWS know how the match is working out
  • you let PAWS know if the foster pet has any health problems or behavioural concerns
  • you let PAWS know if you can no longer care for the pet

Call PAWS at 250-428-7297 to learn more about the program.

We have no pets eligible for the Senior for Senior Foster Program today.
