For elderly pet owners, who often live alone or in group facilities, pets can help reduce stress, lower blood pressure, increase social interaction and physical activity and help them learn.
Pet's for Seniors Feeding Program
Research shows that seniors who have pets also have fewer physician appointments—21 percent fewer visits than those who do not own a pet. So in response, we have partnered with Enid SPCA. We are able to provide pet food once a month to seniors who are financially limited. Animals are terrific friends and are sometimes the only companion some seniors see on a daily basis and we want to ensure that relationship and special bond continues.
