Senoir-Pet Matchup Programs

The Beagle DogA number of programs have been developed to encourage the good that pets can do for senior citizens, and vise versa. Two of these programs are:

Pets for the Elderly Foundation (PEF)-
A nonprofit organization “that provides the gift of health and happiness to senior citizens in need” by making donations to animal shelters across the USA for the purpose of providing the elderly with a companion pet at no charge (this includes the adoption fee, spay/neuter fee, immunizations, and follow-up visits). Approximately 55 shelters nationwide participate in this program, which in turn has saved nearly 5000 pets- and, of course, brought joy into the lives of many seniors. For more info on PEF, visit; or call 866-849-3598, toll-free.

Partnering Animals with Seniors (P.A.W.S.)-
Launched by the Arizona Humane Society (AHS), P.A.W.S. is for people 60 and older who want to share their lives with a pet. According to the AHS online, the focus of P.A.W.S. is to find homes for older companion animals in its care- a classic senior matchup. For more info on P.A.W.S., visit

You may also contact your local humane organization to find if such programs exist in your community as well as contacting the Headquarters of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), 202-452-1100;, or the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), 212-867-7700;
