The Houston SPCA has animals of all sizes, breeds, colors and ages who need permanent, loving homes. Many senior animals find their way to the shelter for a number of reasons. The truth is that age is just a number. Senior animals who are eight years or older are loyal, affectionate, require moderate exercise and are usually settled in their behavior.
The fee to adopt a “Golden Paws” pet is $45 for cats and $75 for dogs. Golden Paws animals receive the same adoption package.
The “Seniors for Seniors” program places senior cats and dogs (eight years of age and older) with senior citizens who are 65 years of age or older. The cost to adopt a “Seniors for Seniors” pet is $15. Seniors for Seniors animals come with the following adoption package.
