Spotlight on a Rescue or Charity: We Salute Pets For The Elderly Foundation
We are dedicated to spreading awareness about pet related causes such as pet adoption. So we are excited to announce our new Tuesday blog series “Spotlight on a Rescue or Charity”, to pay tribute and honor animal rescue, shelters and charities. These are our unsung heroes across America dedicated to enriching, saving and nurturing the lives of animals in need. We hope you will champion our cause by barking the word about the importance of pet adoption and donating your time and finances to your local animal shelter or rescue. Be a voice, email us if you know of a deserving animal rescue or charity that should be spotlighted and recognized. There’s no disputing animals have always had a positive impact on their owners’ lives. Now, evidence suggests four-legged friends are a real health benefit for elderly people, helping them live longer, healthier and happier lives. With that said, we are proud to spotlight “Pets for the Elderly Foundation”. Pets can help people get over the loss of a loved one, depression, and remind them that they are loved and needed, so for the elderly and homeless pets, this charity is a win win. Thanks for joining friends together for life!
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. Their mission is to give both a lonely, elderly person and an innocent, unwanted animal the gift of health and happiness through companionship.
The Pets for the Elderly Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, helps pay the fees to participating animal shelters throughout the United States for senior citizens (age 60 and over) who adopt a companion dog or cat from a participating shelter — including pre-adoption veterinary exams and spay/neuter, if part of the adoption fee.
Pets For the Elderly began in Cleveland in 1992, and expanded nationally in 2001 with a goal of saving as many companion animals as possible from euthanasia. They have a small staff, and all administrative costs are paid by the organization's founder. Currently there are 55 participating shelters in 29 states. Many more shelters would like to participate, shelters are added as funding becomes available. In 2010, the Pets for the Elderly Foundation assisted with the adoption of 5,770 companion animals. Their goal is to save the lives of 7,500 companion pets annually, while enhancing the lives of an equal number of senior citizens.
They urgently need your help! Your monetary donation can make a difference. Few causes can have the potential benefits that will result from your contribution. You not only save the life of an animal, you can make a dramatic difference in the life of an elderly person.
How can you help Pets for the Elderly?
The Pets for the Elderly Foundation helps with the cost of adoption of a companion animal by a senior citizen - thus reducing the number of animals in shelters. and providing companionship, health and happiness to senior citizens. You can make a difference in the lives of seniors – and in the lives of discarded pets – by making a donation to Pets for the Elderly. Your heartfelt monetary donation will help allow even more shelters to participate in this bark-worthy cause.
