Adopt a Senior Cat or Dog at Paws

We offer a reduced suggested donation of just $75 for cats and $150 for dogs, these donations may be waived for dogs and cats who have been with us more than 3 months.

Seniors for Seniors Program.


We believe that everyone should experience the enjoyment of a pet. Pets bring us love, joy and companionship at any age. They inspire us each and every day, positively impact our health and make us into better people. PAWS’ Seniors for Seniors Program is open to all folks age 75 and over who are looking forward to the joys of pet ownership. 


  • Senior cats are age 10 years and over and dogs determined by size and breed

  • Adoption counselors will help match approved adopters who are 75+ with senior animals

  • A younger contingency person is required to be on file. (This is someone who would care for your cat if you are no longer able to.)

  • Your adoption fee will be waived—but we always appreciate donations

  • Our senior cats and dogs come fully vetted (up to date vaccinations, exam, and senior profile bloodwork)

  • Other procedures, like dental work, are done as needed prior to adoption.
