In order to help both the senior people and the homeless senior pets of our community, the Irvine Animal Care Center has implemented a new program that will allow individuals age 62 and older to adopt a senior pet at no charge. Many of our senior pets came from a nice home environment and were relinquished because their owners could no longer care for them.
The stress of shelter life is often quite difficult for senior animals and so the quicker they can find a good new home, the better. Since these animals are often already housebroken and way beyond the puppy years of chewing, jumping the fence and digging up the flower bed, they make great companions for senior citizens. Look for the green "senior" stamp on the kennel cards to identify our adoptable seniors.
