The P.E.T.S. “A Senior for A Senior” adoption program is all about seniors discovering the joys of having a pet in their lives. The program helps senior citizens who are on a fixed income and unable to afford the adoption fees for a companion animal but are capable of caring for a pet and wish to experience the love of a furry companion.

To qualify for this program, an adopter must be at least 60 years young, and adopt a senior dog or cat that is approximately 6 years or older. The number of adopters that can be assisted by this program is limited, and participants will be chosen on a first-come-first-served basis, provided they meet the required guidelines for eligibility. Please contact the Tehama County Animal Care Center at 1830 Walnut Street, Red Bluff, CA, (530-527-3439) to see if you qualify for this wonderful program.

The P.E.T.S. “A Senior for a Senior” program discounts adoption fees to $20.00 for Senior Dogs and $0.00 for Senior Cats. All animals in this adoption program will be spayed/neutered, micro-chipped and have current vaccinations. A photo ID and low income verification must be provided to qualify.

The Tehama County Animal Care Center will help you select a companion who fits into your lifestyle and housing situation. For more information about the “A Senior for A Senior” adoption program or to arrange a visit with a wonderful senior animal at the Tehama County Animal Care Center, please call 530-527-3439.
