Senior for Senior Foster Program

The PAWS ‘Seniors for Seniors’ program matches people 60 and over in the Creston area with older pets. These matches usually work out well because older pets are trained, calmer, and quieter than younger animals, so they better fit the lifestyle of an older person.
Older adults may not want the commitment of a pet but have the room in both their heart and their home for one. Senior pets can sometimes be harder to adopt because of their age or because they also have special needs, so this is also a win-win for the pet.
The program matches a senior pet with the applicant. PAWS covers the medical expenses and special needs items.
In turn, we ask that:
  • if the cat is an indoor cat, it always be kept indoors
  • you let PAWS know how the match is working out
  • you let PAWS know if the foster pet has any health problems or behavioural concerns
  • you let PAWS know if you can no longer care for the pet

MaleDOB: 8/11/2006. Kitty is a gentle handsome 16-year-old Tuxedo fellow. This nice boy is healthy and friendly. Even though Kitty is happiest bonding with a single person, he will be fine being a companion to a new family who will understand his needs. Because of his age, Kitty is available for a Senior for Senior adoption! Is Kitty the senior cat for you? Give PAWS a call to meet this nice fellow.

MaleDOB: 4/29/2014. Archery is a quiet tabby boy. He's a bit shy at first, but warms up quickly. He's our quirky guy who loves to greet you for pets, gives great head bumps and has a real talent for air-kneading! This nice fellow gets along with other cats as well. He will do very well in a quiet home, and he will need some time to get used to his new surroundings...this nice boy is totally worth it!

FemaleDOB: 1/1/2016. April is a pretty orange and white girl. She is a chatty girl that loves being with people. This nice girl does not like other cats much...she is very happy to be the queen of her very own castle. A quiet home with just her very own people would be a perfect spot for this nice girl! Give PAWS a call to meet April.
