Ah, my love for dogs only rivals my love for the elderly. I’ve rescued all of my dogs and recognize the intense bond we share and how much they impact my life. I don’t know what I would do without them.
I hate to think of an elderly loved one having to give up their pet. Sadly, this happens more than I want to imagine. For a senior citizen who has to move in with an adult child and, for whatever reason, their pet is not accepted into the house. What is one to do? What about having to go into a nursing or retirement home? Pets are seldom allowed there.
It’s a sad situation: Please bookmark this page as I will be adding some ideas or resources for finding an elderly dog or cat a new home, if absolutely necessary.
Anyway, in the mean time, if your senior citizen friend is anything like me, they will really appreciate some great gifts for their pet.
