"SENIOR MUTTS FOR SENIORS MATCH" PROGRAM
San Diego, CA, USA.
The daily routine and exercise requirement for a dog encourages seniors to get out and walk on a daily basis, which is great for senior health and well-being. The added responsibility of caring for a pet may be what is required to prevent lonliness and elderly depression.
Older dogs are less destructive and most likely to be better behaved and trained therefore making them ideal pets for elderly.
An important consideration is that senior dogs may need more veterinary care.
The organization also holds Senior Mutt Match adoption events.
