Growing older doesn't mean growing lonelier. The Mature Pets for Mature People program offers senior citizens 60 years or older the opportunity to adopt a companion animal free of charge.
Pets who are chosen for the program are at least five years old and spayed/neutered. Additionally, if a senior would rather adopt a pet that is younger (between the ages of 6 months and up to 5 years), the adoption fee will be reduced.
Senior citizens interested in adopting a pet through the Mature Pets for Mature People program are invited to complete an application at any time. Applications can be obtained by calling HSHA at 717-564-3320.
