Senior dogs are often overlooked due to actual
or anticipated medical costs. As a result, these wonderful dogs may spend their
golden years languishing in a shelter environment, which is truly
heartbreaking. Via a pilot Senior Care Program, FOHA is encouraging the
adoption of senior dogs, defined as dogs eight years or older, through various
incentives. Specifically, FOHA will waive the adoption fee for senior dogs and
reimburse up to $1,500 in qualifying medical expenses or up to $1,500 in pet
insurance premiums. Funding for this program is obtained through the generous
support of donors, committed to saving senior dogs, who have specifically
earmarked monies to support this wonderful cause.
Since the program was unveiled nine months ago on Valentine's Day, February 14, 2018, FOHA has found homes for nine senior dogs. That's one senior every month!
Eligible dogs are marked on the website with the Senior Care heart.
