"SENIOR MUTTS FOR SENIORS MATCH" PROGRAM

WHATDirectory of pet adoption organizations that can provide a match for a senior citizen to adopt a senior dog.
WHYThe lifestyle match of a senior citizen with an older dog can be rewarding, possibly more than one with a younger dog or puppy.
WHERE Senior Mutt Match
San Diego, CA, USA.


Program Description

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.
