Senior to Senior Program

At the Pawfest event here in Largo, FL we meet a wonderful lady named Fran.  She volunteers with the Pinellas County Animal Services for a program called Senior-to-Senior. Tragically as the shelters  fill  during these years of economic hardship, the number of senior pets has also increased.  They are relinquished due to ill health, incontinence, other age-related issues, lack of funds, or the owner passing away.  These older pets are very likely to remain in the shelter for the remainder of their life or be euthanized to make room for more adoptable animals. This great program is trying to help these loving pets enjoy their remaining life in a happy home....
