ElderDog serves older adults who may face health, mobility or financial challenges.

ElderDog provides seniors with free help to take care of their dogs.

Volunteers help the elderly by providing support with the following during home visits:

  • Assistance with dog walking.
  • Assistance with delivering or picking up dog food and feeding.
  • Assistance with animal hygiene and minor grooming.
  • Transportation to and from veterinarian or groomer.
  • Temporary care during hospitalization.

ElderDog helps seniors with daily dog care activities, provides foster care and free adoption of older dogs, long-term care planning for companion dogs and provides the community with volunteer opportunties, education and research opportunities.

Those interested in helping the elderly by setting up their own chapter of ElderDog can do so by setting up their own local Pawd with ElderDog’s guidance.
